DREAM on Sunday held its second event in two weeks at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan before 21,789 fans.
The focus was on the second round of the promotion’s lightweight grand prix. Caol Uno upset Mitsuhiro Ishida to move on in the tournament, along with Eddie Alvarez and Tatsuya Kawajiri.
In fact, Alvarez’s performance was part of a fight that is already being considered a candidate for “fight of the year.”
After a tumultuous week, Nick Diaz proved his mettle, defeating Katsuya Inoue midway through the first round. He earned a shot at the DREAM welterweight championship. Diaz will now face Hayato “Mach” Sakurai on July 21 at DREAM.5.
