    In just over 24 hours we are privy to:

    Affliction:

    -Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia
    -Josh Barnett vs. Pedro Rizzo
    -Andre Arlovski vs. Ben Rothwell
    -Matt Lindland
    vs. Fabio Negao
    -Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Mike Whitehead
    -Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Paul Buentello
    -Vitor Belfort vs. Terry Martin
    -Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Edwin Dewees
    -Trenell "Savant" Young vs. Mark Hominick
    -Justin Levens vs. Patrick Speight
    -Mike Pyle vs. J.J. Ambrose

    Main Card Bouts:
    -Anderson Silva vs. James Irvin (at Light Heavyweight)
    -Frankie Edgar vs. Hermes Franca

    -Brandon Vera vs. Reese Andy
    -Anthony Johnson vs. Kevin Burns

    Preliminary Bouts:
    -Jake O'Brien vs. Cain Velasquez
    -Brad Blackburn vs. James Giboo
    -Rory Markham vs. Brodie Farber
    -Dale Hartt vs. Shannon Gugerty
    -Nate Loughran vs. Johnny Rees
    -Jesse Taylor vs. C.B. Dollaway

    DREAM 5: JULY 21, 2008
    venue: Osakajo Hall in Osaka, Japan

    Lightweight Grand Prix Finals (16-man tournament)
    -Shinya Aoki vs. Caol Uno
    -Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Eddie Alvarez

    [Semi-Finals and Finals will take place on the same night]

    Non-Tournament Bouts:
    -Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto vs. Joe Benavidez
    -Denis Kang vs. TBA
    -Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. TBA



    That is 27 fights and there will probably be 3-4 more added to the DREAM.5 card. A large percentage of the best fighters in MMA will be fighting on this (extended) weekend.

    Us as fans should sit back and relish the saturation.

    omg thats gonna be sweet.

    Oh and I liked the bolding lol, it really is all the fighters i care about. Although Denis Kang deserves a bolding imo.

    I think he just missed Kang. Im pretty sure Roose is a fan of Denis. Maybe not so much anymore since his last fights. But i think he just missed him, 2 many names to BOLD :wavey:

    Shannon Gugerty used to train full time at my gym and is VERY good. Glad to see the UFC bringing him in.

    He'd have gotten a bold if he has a legit opponent.

    His last few fights have been :o
