I am calling it now... Jose Canseco will die after taking one of Choi's knees to his skull.


I agree with svar that the "true open weight" tourney is a little ridiculous, but it is a logical way for DREAM to try and get its ratings going. The japanese will eat this up. I can't say that I am not interested in seeing some of the beatdowns that are sure to result. Furthermore, if this is the price we pay to see the rest of the card I am ok with that.

I'm actually pretty excited to see a few freak shows. Should be some really fun matchups. The only dissapointment is the cancelation of Mousasi vs Soku.

Minowa vs Sapp might become the hotbout. Minowa has looked horrible in his last couple outings, and Sapp has seemed pretty disinterested in MMA recently--does he even train anymore?

Canseco is just one of those guys that is very enjoyable to watch him get punched. He's struggled in celebrity boxing matches, so this is pretty shocking.

There are going to be a crap load of current and former baseball players ordering this fight just to see Canseco get this ass kicked.

Am I the only one that things the entire Super Hulk tourney is a joke? They scraped Mousasi vs. Soko, which was actually a competative match-up, to have them fight super heavy weights? Mousasi just moved up from MW, so I doubt hes going to weight in at much more than 205lbs, and Soko is fighting a professional boxer who will probably have a foot of reach on him. Minowa does this circus stuff all the time, but why throw two decent MMA fighters into this?

As for Canseco, that is the biggest throw away fight I've ever heard of. You might as well have Hong Man Choi fight four midgets for all the athletic appeal a bout with Canseco has. There is literally nothing Canseco can do to Choi to injure him in any way.




On the midgets part.

But.....for some reason I believe with Canseco on the card, this will be huge.
And this card is going to be aired on HDNet right? Awsome fights! Too bad they scrapped the Soko/Mousasi fight though.

oh yeah don't like the fact that they scrapped a good fight with Mousasi and through him into a tournament where he is likely the smallest competitor and unfortunately may get a unnecessary loss ???this makes me sad cause I thought this guy was going to be huge but now he's in the silliest tournament in years

I'm kind of annoyed that they are wasting Mousasi like this

He is way, way too talented to be even theoretically matched up with Jose ******* Canseco in the future

other than that I got no objections, let it ride Japan!

It is too bad this superhulk tourney didnt happen 25 years ago. Andre René Roussimoff would have pwned all.

Sounds like Jose Canseco might be rethinking this.

I wouldn't blame him. Has he seen HMC in K-1? He's not a grappler that's gonna school him on the ground. In standup he doesn't have a prayer. Tho I do wanna see HMC knock his head off. So whatever, we'll see. Maybe he just insists on a diff first rd guy. that's just a little juggling of fights, in Japan they do that (just like freak show fight tournaments) so it shouldn't be that big a deal.
