Despite a 20-2-1 record, Gegard Mousasi (Pictures) was a heavy underdog going into Tuesday's fight with Denis Kang (Pictures) in the Dream middleweight grand prix. After his first-round submission win over the Canadian veteran, one can definitely say the role was not justified.

Breaking News: Aoki Out, ‘JZ' Back in Tourney
(sherdog.com)
Just a day following Gesias "JZ" Calvancante (Pictures)'s exit from Dream's lightweight tournament, the American Top Team slugger is expected to find his way back in the field, a source from Calvancante's camp informed Sherdog.com Wednesday morning. Shinya Aoki (Pictures), 15-2 with 1 NC, suffered a facial injury in Tuesday's bout that saw him outpoint Calvancante after two rounds. The injury will prevent the 24-year-old Japanese grappler from competing in the May 11 tournament semifinal. According to the source, Calvancante, fresh off his first mixed martial arts loss in nearly four years, was contacted by Dream staff early Wednesday and informed of Aoki's withdrawal.

More money than meets the eye in the UFC
(sports.yahoo.com)
One of my passions in life is technology. I’m obsessed with gizmos and gadgets and am all but in love with my iPhone. A friend who knows about my obsession had a computer he wanted to sell on eBay and asked me what I felt it was worth. He went to a Web site that showed an estimated street value, one I felt was considerably too high. He argued that his asking price was justified because this web site was made up of experts and they agreed with him. True, I said, but something is only worth what someone else will pay for it. And when we went to eBay and looked at completed listings for a computer with specs similar to his, he was shocked. People were only paying about half of what he thought he could get. And that same analogy is true when it comes to fighter compensation. There is a lot of debate in the mixed martial arts media over what the UFC pays its fighters. It’s easy to take the stance that the fighters deserve more pay.

Not So Fast, DREAM Still Has Network TV Deal
(bloodyelbow.com)
Or so says their American rep to ADCC News:

FEG-USA top dog Mike Kogan contacted Kid Peligro and ADCC News regarding the rumors that DREAM had lost its TBS contract. Mike stated: "We're still with TBS and still have primetime slots. HEROS had 4 prime time slots with TBS, DREAM replaced HEROS and we are planning 7 events (6 in Japan and 1 in Korea) plus Dynamite. It was impossible to get that many prime time slots so we decided that we would have the first event on prime time, the next on one week delay. We will have the two Grand Prix finals and Dynamite on Prime time." The rumors started recently when DREAM 2 was not scheduled for a primetime slot but rather pay-per-view, Mike explained: "Pay-per-view is a growing market in Japan and this actually is an additional revenue stream for us. I don't know where these people get these rumors but this was all negotiated last year so nothing has changed."

Gesias (JZ) complains partiality at DREAM
(tatame.com)
The polemical fight between Gesias Cavalcanti and the Japanese fighter Shinya Aoki at DREAM’s lightweight GP seems to have no end. After Aoki’s complaining about an elbow blow at his back of the head and the organization define another date for the fight, it’s time to Gesias complain about some partiality at DREAM’s GP. The next fight will happen at the Saitama Super Arena at April 29th, and the Brazilian fighter said that the organization is giving advantage for some athletes. “My fight was No Contest and the correct by the event rules was that I win, but now I’ll have to fight two times in two weeks”, said Gesias that complained about some advantages to other fighters. “I’m not unsatisfied, but I think it’s a disrespect an event that is starting now with a 16 athlete tournament, but on the first stage only has 14. An athlete is on the second stage without passing trough the first fight, if I’m not wrong it’s Caol Uno, they didn’t announced that. I’m Hero’s champion and I’m asking for any privileges, I’m only asking for a fair game”, said the Gesias.
