    if he can win his next fight in dream

    The DREAM.3 card on May 11th has been updated with 5 fights. Many new faces will enter DREAM for this event. Maybe the biggest fight out of these newly announced is Nick Diaz vs. Former 2-time Welterweight King Of Pancrase, Katsuya Inoue (he vacated the title to drop to Lightweight). Also on the card, Melvin Manhoef will face Korean Kim Dae Won, but the fight hasn’t been announced as part of the Middleweight GP.

    Hiroyuki Takaya returns to Japan after losing in the WEC to take on GRABAKA’s Takeshi Yamazaki. Jung Bukyung finally gets a fight more at his level as his announced opponent is Daisuke Nakamura. The rumored Jason Miller vs. Katsuyori Shibata fight was also announced.

    Update: Some new information, Jason Miller vs. Katsuyori Shibata will be a Middleweight GP fight and Melvin Manhoef vs. Dae Won Kim will be a reserve fight for the GP. They also deleted the Takaya fight from the card on the official DREAM website. Yamazaki was present at the press conference, so it’s odd. I think it also says that Diaz vs. Inoue is for the Welterweight title.

    Update #2: Yamazaki is now listed as a participant, looks like he won’t fight Takaya.

    Update #3: The winner of Diaz vs. Inoue will face Hayato Sakurai for the Welterweight title in July or September!
