DCRage » Posted 8/3/07 12:38:00PM

After the success of lightweight and middleweight tournaments in 2008, the Japanese-based DREAM organization will launch featherweight and welterweight tournaments this year. DREAM executives made the announcement earlier this week following its MMA/K-1 kickboxing card, FieLDS Dynamite!! 2008, which took place Dec. 31 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. DREAM also plans 6 shows for 2009, but no dates have been announced.

If Kid is healthy I hope the WEC will send guys, I'd like to see kid take on Faber, Brown and Garcia.

It would be awesome if the WEC would send guys, but it won't happen. Kid will steamroll everyone in the tournament(he likeley would run through the WEC guys too).

I love these tournaments. There's definetely a deep talent pool of FW's in Japan, but I'm not so sure about WW. It will be interesting to see who they can gather.

the featherweight tournament would rock. lots of shooto guys, probably 1 WEC guy like benevidez, and some european fighters. hopefully kid can recover and join.. if not i'd root for tokoro. as inconsistant as he is, i cant not cheer for him

So Sweet!!! I hope they grab up enough good talent.

Right on , I can't see Zuffa sending it's best there to get run threw. IMO there will be a lot more japanese fighters in these tournaments.

I love hearing this. I do hope that these tournaments happen. I like the FW, and WW divisions, but it also gives us a chance to see other fighters filling out the cards, that we don't get to see on a regular basis. I hope Dream stays alive.
