. So which fights do you guys think should be on the card?

here is some to choose from so far

Also as far as I remember WVR fights are 3 rounds except for 5 round title fights

and Dream are all 2 rounds. Is that still right?

WVR

RC Welterweight Grand Prix Final:
-Yasubey Enomoto (6-1) vs. Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura (20-4-2)

SRC Asian Bantamweight Grand Prix Semifinals:
-Manabu Inoue (11-5-1) vs. Shunichi Shimizu (18-6-9)
-Akitoshi Tamura (15-9-2) vs. Taiyo Nakahara (11-6)

Dave Herman (19-2) vs. Yoshihiro Nakao (9-2)

I think you've nailed it on the SRC ones announced to date. Have there even been any official announcements for the DREAM card? Damn Japanese cards. They never have a full fight card until like six hours before the show.

Can we just put Sakuraba on the board against a mystery opponent? It's an NYE card, and I'm pretty sure they'll feel compelled to march his corpse out there again this year. Not that I'm complaining mind you.

Definitely Zaromskis-Sakuraba and Fernandes-Takaya, right now the rest is wait and hope the fights are announced far enough ahead of time.


Also as far as I remember WVR fights are 3 rounds except for 5 round title fights

and Dream are all 2 rounds. Is that still right?


That's still correct.

WVR fights are 3 5-minute rounds (5 rounds for a title fight) and use the 10-point must scoring system. DREAM fight consist of 1 10-minute round followed by one 5-minute round and are scored using the same system that PRIDE used.

I would say if Gono and Mann are given decent opponent's then possibly add them to the card.

If they get an opponent for Maximo Blanco, I'd like to see him on the card.

Sengoku just added a Marlon Sandro-Hatsu Hioki Sengoku Featherweight Title fight to their card, that one sounds like a no-brainer.

I'm not looking for these gimme or special rules matches-Misaki/Seal - Nagashima /Aoki. Looking for the 10 best fights. please keep that in mind when submitting updates. Thanks

would it be possible to take away one of the lesser fights like K-taro vs Enomoto or tamura vs nakahara for Allistair Overeem Vs Todd Duffee. its a much more exciting fight imo.

I added it but I am leaving all 14 this once. Dream has a tendency to publicize fights that don't even happen in the end. If it ends up 14 i will live with it this once, but Duffee/Overem still couldn't be confirmed by Duffee's people as of this post. Since the new years show is usually their biggest that makes me think k it more likely it will happen though.

How come the wagers are locked for this card?
DCRage
12/26/10 8:35:34AM
They're not. There just aren't any fights to make wagers on yet because enough people haven't made picks for any fights yet-there have to be at least 600 picks made on a fight for it to show up in wagers.

Potential change to Sengoku portion: According to Ryo Chonan's Twitter, Dan Hornbuckle is now off. Flu.

12/27 edit: Confirmed by World Victory Road today. Taisuke Okuno (10-5-2) is the replacement. I think that downgrades it from must-add to Push.

12/29/10 8:24:53AM
Overeem-Duffee is finally official, but it's going to be 3 rounds and not 2.

If Hornbuckle is off, I'd like to see Blanco added instead of Chonan and his replacement - unless that just gets taken off completely due to time constraints.

12/29/10 5:50:25PM
Looks like it might be too late, picks for both events lock at 11 PM ET (only 5 hours away). No wagers this time.
