Yes, I was acctually planning to attend it live. It was like $180 for the mid level tickets and $900 for the VIP(VIP allows you to go back stage).

The rest of the fights should be paired up like this


Gilbert Melendez vs Artur Oumakhanov
Mitsuhiro Ishida vs Caol Uno
Andre Dida vs Jung Bu-Kyung

At the end of the 1st Round I think the match ups come out like this

JZ gets the out bracket because he's the first seed

Gilbert Melendez vs Buscape Firmimo
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs Andre Dida
Mitsuhiro Ishida vs Hellboy Hansen

Semi-Finals

Gilbert Melendez vs Hellboy Hansen
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs JZ Calvancante

Finals

Gilbert Melendez vs JZ Calvancante

And I think Golbert wins the Tournament, You heard me say it First

Yeah This does look really good and I'll definetly be watching it somewhere.
I'm a fan of Melendez for sure and I like hanson alot I would love to see these guys in the ufc even though the division they fight in is stacked I think they would climb to the top real quick.
I'm going for Melendez to win the whole thing but I do like a handful of the fighters, can't wait.

I don't think as of yet they have anything set as for North American viewing, I know that Cuban is in there working hard on getting the rites (he posted on Sherdog about it a couple of days ago) but nothing is set. Lets hope that this gets signed with someone soon, I hate watching fights on the internet.

(and yes that is the real Mark Cuban)

Not to go off on a tangent but that artwork/photography is what the UFC lacks. The UFC event websites are amazing but the actual production values on the shows are really lacking. That awful gladiator opening?!? How is that still running?!

Dream is partnered with K-1. all K-1 fights are shown LIVE on either Fight Network or other PPV's. so don't worry. The NA Market is too big for them not too broadcast in NA. don't worry ppl.
