    5/11 DREAM 3 - Fights Added


    DREAM has had their fair share of problems with the tournaments. Its been well documented and I don't want to spend too much time on it. NoB has summarized the problems here. There are a couple of reasons I don't want to dwell on these things too much, but basically if you have a tournament it happens. Just think of the problems Cage Force had with their tournament.

    I think the 2 first events has suffered because FEG rushed into them. For DREAM 3 things are looking WAY better. They are setting up reserve fights for the tournaments and also a welterweight championship eliminator fight! This is stuff I really like and I think DREAM 3 is showing signs that DREAM are serious. Add to that the possibility of a live broadcast on HDNet (I hope they can make that happen) and things are looking up!

    Anyway, today there were 5 fights announced:
    Nick Diaz 15-7-0 vs. 16-5-3 Katsuya Inoue
    Jung Bukyung 0-2-0 vs. 13-9-0 Daisuke Nakamura
    Jason Miller 20-5-0 vs. 2-3-0 Katsuyori Shibata
    Melvin Manhoef 20-4-1 vs. Kim Dae Won
    Takeshi Yamazaki 13-7-2 vs. TBA

    That gives us this card:

    Lightweight Tournament Round 2:
    Caol Uno 24-10-4 vs. 16-3-1 Mitsuhiro Ishida
    Tatsuya Kawajiri 21-4-2 vs. 12-3-0 Luiz “Buscape” Firmino
    Joachim Hansen 17-6-1 vs. 13-1-0 Eddie Alvarez
    Katsuhiko Nagata 4-2-0 vs. Shinya Aoki

    Welterweight Champion Eliminator:
    Nick Diaz 15-7-0 vs. 16-5-3 Katsuya Inoue

    Middleweight Tournament Round 1:
    Jason Miller 20-5-0 vs. 2-3-0 Katsuyori Shibata

    Middleweight Tournament Reserve Fight:
    Melvin Manhoef 20-4-1 vs. Kim Dae Won

    Non-Tournament Fights:
    Jung Bukyung 0-2-0 vs. 13-9-0 Daisuke Nakamura
    Takeshi Yamazaki 13-7-2 vs. TBA




    looks like we'll be seeing MayheM vs. Manhoef down the road :noes:

    I can't imagine that he has a ton.

    I was at an event in Atlantic City and he was just sitting on the bleachers after the event. No one was near him when I went up to talk to him. Everyone was flocking to Hendo.

    I would guess that on the West Coast and with bigger MMA fans he is pretty well known, but I don't know it his popularity extends any further than that.

    Mayhem fell out of the view of a lot of hardcore MMA fans in the past year or so, this DREAM fight may be his way back to the center of attention which assuredly he wants
