Rumors have been sweeping the Internet in recent days pointing to a welterweight affiliated with the Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas as being involved in negotiations to fight WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki during the first round of DREAM’s upcoming welterweight tournament.

FiveOuncesOfPain.com has confirmed through its sources that the fighter in question is former WEC and UFC veteran John Alessio. However, a source cautioned that a deal to bring Alessio into the tournament fold has not been finalized and his chances of signing and fighting Aoki were appraised as being “50/50.”

if he does sign, he has a "90/10" percent chance of getting subbed

At least quality welterweights are throwing their names in the hat to go up against Aoki and Mach. I think Alessio, whoever he's matched up with will make an exciting fight. I think Mach would knock him out and I think that Aoki would sub him, but like I said, the more quality names the better.
