Dream 11 is in the books and the post-fight press conferences are available on Dream's YouTube channel, so let's take a look at what was said.

Bibiano Fernandes won't fight until 2010: Dream promoter Keiichi Sasahara said at his post-fight press conference that the cut over Fernandes' eye likely means he won't be able to defend his Dream featherweight belt this year. When he does fight next year, it might be a rematch of Tuesday's main event, which Fernandes won by split decision over Hiroyuki Takaya.

Sweet! I would love nto see a rematch and see if Takaya can beat him. I went not knowing who this guy was and after seeing both of his fights at Dream and with Quinton probably being done with fighting "Streetfight Bancho" made my top 10 favourite fighters.

Warren's purse would be going to medical bills if it weren't for that ref. He had no chance once Bibiano had him face down.

Bob Sapp...how can you complain about your stoppage?

anyway, i'm relaly excited about Aoki vs Kawajiri. Aoki seems to be getting back to great form after the Sakurai loss and i love that he is still fighting big names. Kawajiri is a very dangerous match up for him; he can grapple and he has devastating power. i will be biting my nails every single second of that fight, but god do i love it

Exactly...Warren needs to watch the video.

I actually think Warren did tap. I am almost sure that he tapped in the video I saw.
Or maybe his hand tapped unintentionally right after he fell onto his stomach?

Yeah warren had nowhere to go but to the ER if the fight went on I didn't think he tapped looked like he put his hand on bibianos leg and didn't know what to do but the slam that he did was freakin bad ass too bad he left his arm for a gift

It does look like he taps from the front, but if you watch the replay from the side, you see that he actually didn't. Either way, it was most likely a done deal.

Oh ,silly me...I forgot that a camera angle from the side is more credible than from the front.

Great fight. I'm actually leaning towards "Crusher" in this one. Aoki will be forced to stand far more than he'd like and I think Kawajiri can put him to sleep. But then again I suck at picking Japanese MMA.
