Dream 18

Thought I'd post this here in case no one read the smaller promotion thread.

Wow, I didn't realize this was taking place. I thought Dream folded. The MMA fights are decent but I'm really looking forward to the HW Kickboxing GP. Not as many big names as the K-1 GP's but still getting Schilt, Ghita, Remy, Zimmerman, Aerts, and Saki is pretty good.

I think these promotions can all share fighters ... under the terms of the agreement cited here.

http://www.mmafighting.com/2012/11/2...ng-partnership

Asian MMA is pretty decentralized right now...

Awhile back I thought, ONE FC was gaining momentum and would be the heir-apparent to Pride and a unifying entity in Asian MMA... but I am not sure that is what's forming now...

Seems like each country has a promo (One FC is Singapore, Dream in Japan ... Road FC Korea ... etc... there are other countries in on this) ... the guys become champions in their own country (that seems fishy) ,...

anyway it would be cool to see a guy win the straps in all of these Asian leagues.

This is awesome, also looking forward to the kickboxing the most.

It will be nice to see some of the old familiar names fighting again, always loved takaya & the crusher/omigawa fight should be quite entertaining, same with Melvin vs kang.

Hector has been retweeting people asking for Okami-Lombard. God, that's a horrible matchup for Okami. War Shango!

That's a great matchup for Okami. He's gotta be the most underrated fighter in the world at this point. The only guys to beat him up were the best wrestler and best striker in the division. He was kicking Boetsch's ass and goofed up. A fighter like Lombard who doesn't have great cardio is not going to hang with him. Okami can do his usual stink out job in the first round and go to work in the second and third. His wins against Nate, Munoz, and Belcher are going to hold up as good ones for quite a while.


I would prefer to see Lombard face Phillipou.

How is Okami going to throw him to the ground? Lombard has a much more advanced judo pedigree that took him to the Olympics. Lombard is going to be able to KO Okami whenever he wants to.

Okami/Lombard is a good fight. I don't like Okami but his style is effective and smothering..it would be interesting to see how Lombard handles it.

Erick Silva's injured so Tyron Woodley will fill in and make his debut at UFC 156 against Jay Hieron.

Glad to hear this. I've seen Mein fight quite a bit over the years and he's a pretty good fighter. He's improved a lot in the last couple years and is still only 23. Only loss in the last couple years was to Woodley by split decision. Has some decent wins on his record too. He'll never be a title contender but still a good addition.

Pretty much this. He's good fighter and a nice guy to have a on a card. Could float around in the middle of the top 10.

Well, I pretty much made my own bed up above if Okami can't win that.

Thunder and Lightning, nice. That's a great card for a freebie. Silva/Stann, Hunt/Struve, Okami/Lombard, Sanchez/Gomi, StunGun/Siyar as well as a bunch of good undercard fights.

Well I hope you're wrong (no offense of course ). No one wants to see Okami-Silva again, and aside from Weidman Lombard seems to be the only thing we've got at 185 right now. If Lombard wins this you figure maybe one more win and at least you have a somewhat intriguing fresh matchup for Anderson.
