    DreamFighters.com has learned that the scapped match between Hayato Sakurai and Nick Diaz at DREAM.5 (due to nick's contract obligations) has been postponed until September, DREAM.6.

    Hayato Sakurai has updated his web blog, in which he reports that his fight against Nick Diaz for DREAM.5 is off and that it has been postponed until September at DREAM.6.





    thsi'll be either awesome or really shitty, depending which Mach and Diaz shows up
     
  2. when did Mach fail to make weight? I thought he just stopped trying and started fighting fat at higher weight classes?

    i think he came in at 163 during weigh-ins for his fight against Danzig. he couldn't drop anymore, so at the last minute they made it a catch weight just to accommodate Mach

    i tell him, myself!
     
  11. the comissions can currently only do anything if the fighter misses the contracted weight. If they change the contracted weight at the last minute, comissions can't do anything.

    This needs to be changed, I think, and it wouldn't be hard (require all bouts to give you the contracted weight a week in advance).

    Jordan breen actually talked about this for a while on his show last week, with regards to Carano and Alves and all that.

    There is no reason Diaz should win this fight. So he probably will.

    ah, interesting


    japanese will do anything to protect their fighters...it's like the anti-UFC. refer to the gomi/diaz overturning for example
