He'll probably keep cutting until he makes it since this is DREAM and thus no real rules on it, but as far as implications go this one who missed it earlier is a huge one-Hayato Sakurai. He must get down to 167.2 after coming in at 168.5 earlier.
The results:
Everyone else made weight.
Shinya Aoki (153.6 lb./69.8 kg) vs. Vitor Ribeiro (153.8 lb./69.9 kg)
Jesse Taylor (185.7 lb./84.4 kg) vs. Dong Sik Yoon (186.6 lb./84.8 kg)
Paulo Filho (184.8 lb./84 kg) vs. Melvin Manhoef (184.4 lb./83.8 kg)
Andre Amade (154 lb./70 kg) vs. Katsunori Kikuno (154 lb./70 kg)
Andre Galvao (167.2 lb./76 kg) vs. Jason High (167.2 lb./76 kg)+
Hayato Sakurai (167.2) vs. Marius Zaromskis (166.8 lb./75.8 kg)+
Tarec Saffiedine (166.8 lb./75.8 kg) vs. Ikemoto Seichi (166.8 lb./75.8 kg)*
+-WWGP Semifinals
*-WWGP Reserve Bout

Edit: As of 3 PM ET Sunday, Sakurai has now made weight.

I thought for sure the "one" trying to make it was going to be paulo. Good for him I hope he is up to snuff again, he needs to be against MM.

I think it's good that Filho made weight with what seemed like little trouble (actually, without incident), would seem to indicate that he's finally gotten it back together and is once again focused on fighting.

Updates:
Sakurai has now made weight. Took only 3 attempts and 7 1/2 hours. Wow.

DREAM 11 has been pushed back from September 23 to October 6. No reason given but I sense it has something to do with World Victory Road Sengoku 10 being scheduled for the same date. Same card as before-Super Hulk semifinals, FWGP Semis & Finals and they're still expecting Miller-Souza 3 for the Middleweight Title.

I thought Paulo waas moving up to 205 now?

I picked Melvin, but that fight scares me....and if Paulo made weight easy this time, that scares me even more...

Filho, never has problems making weight outside of the US. Diuretics, and other things banned in the US aren't cared about in Japan.

Take that for what it's worth.

Yeah that's true...

I have been back and forth on this one...(and the Dong vs Taylor)

But I went with Filho by sub..rnd 1.

If Melvin knocks him out, I am blaming it on Kpro and DCRage...haha!

I hope that there were only 5 fights on the card, because I have been gone all week....were the Taylor/Dong, Saffiedine/Ikemoto fights added??? Please tell me no...or Tuvok already won.
