At an impromptu "urgent" press conference in Japan today, it was announced that the upcoming DREAM 14 event will be held in a cage and not the ring normally used in the promotion. Apparently the change was made after Hayato Sakurai requested his fight with Nick Diaz be in a cage and not a ring and other fighters agreed to it. Right now the change appears to be only for DREAM 14.

It's great to see the fighters pushing for this. It's pretty obvious that the best MMA is happening in the States now. I think the fighters are aware of this too and would like to try and catch up with the times.

anyone think this might have something to do with Aokis recent loss?

Wouldn't doubt it. He took the fight with Melendez very seriously in a national sense.

Diaz will probably still demolish him.
