    Monson, Kharitonov, "Ninja" Rua and grand prix fights added to DREAM.8

    by Dann Stupp on Mar 26, 2009 at 11:10 am ET
    [​IMG]The Japanese-based DREAM organization today announced a number of DREAM.8 bouts, including a heavyweight matchup of Jeff Monson (28-8) vs. Sergey Kharitonov (16-3) and the opening-round bouts for its eight-man welterweight grand prix.

    The show, DREAM.8, takes place at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan.

    The event broadcast debuts in North America on April 10 at 10 p.m. EST on HDNet.

    In addition to Monson vs. Kharitonov, DREAM also officially announced the previously reported addition of PRIDE and EliteXC veteran Murilo "Ninja" Rua (16-9-1) to the card. He'll take on Dong Sik Yoon (4-6) in a middleweight bout.

    Also in non-tournament action is a middleweight bout between Andrews Nakahara (1-1) and Shungo Oyama (7-11), who is a late replacement for Zelg Galesic (9-4).

    In tournament action, the eight-man grand prix is headed by an intriguing and previously reported rematch between WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki (20-3) and Hayato "Mach" Sakurai (34-8-2). The two fighters first met at an August 2005 Shooto event, and Aoki suffered a close unanimous-decision loss; it's one of only three career losses for the former PRIDE fighter and 2008 DREAM lightweight grand prix runner-up.

    Other DREAM welterweight grand-prix bouts include UFC veteran John Alessio (24-12) vs. Andre Galvao (2-0), one-time Affliction fighter Jason High (6-1) vs. Yuya Shirai (15-7), and Seichi Ikemoto (18-14-5) vs. Marius Zaromskis (8-2).

    The full DREAM.8 card now includes:
    • Shinya Aoki vs. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai*
    • Ikuhisa "Minowaman" Minowa vs. Katsuyori Shibata
    • Hideo Tokoro vs. DJ.taiki+
    • Yuya Shirai vs. Jason High*
    • Marius Zaromskis vs. Seichi Ikemoto*
    • Andre Galvao vs. John Alessio*
    • Murilo "Ninja" Rua vs. Dong Sik Yoon
    • Andrews Nakahara vs. Shungo Oyama
    • Sergey Kharitonov vs. Jeff Monson

    this card could be a hit, but looks like a miss. Really wish we saw Sak vs Galvao and Aoki vs Allesio.

    He glory-holed me once. Ergo, fag.

    Actually, I remember seeing him in WEC, he seemed like a very cocky douche, and he promptly went out and got his ass beat.
