Spoil:

Another great show for New Years. You guys have already hit on a lot of the main points. LeBanner, Furuki, and Watanabi were all pretty impresive as well in losing efforts, considering they were each out of their element. But to me, the most impressive performance of the night was Kawajiri. He absolutely steamrolled Thomson, who came in looking pretty sharp.

Didn't think the Bibiano/Takaya fight has as much sizzle as their first go around, but good to see Takaya take it. I had him winning the first encounter.

Don't have much to add except Saku needs to retire and Aoki's getting KTFOed was awesome.

The Kanehara/Maeda fight from the Sengoku: Soul of Fight card was pretty crazy.

Fukuda got signed by the UFC after this fight, I think he's fighting Nick Ring (the Canadian dude who was on TUF 11 and messed up his knee) at UFC 127. I remember him also beating Ninja on one of the DREAM cards.

Here's another crazy fight I saw posted on BE, it's a kickboxing bout from one of K-1's feeder leagues. The whole fight is good but the first round is especially nuts.
Quote:
From Krush First Generation King's Tournament, 12/12/10. Opening round bout of the -55kg Tournament between Shootboxing -55kg Champion Ryuya Kusakabe and RISE -55kg Champion Nobuchiko Terado. Great fight that I recommend to anyone, especially round 1. Fight starts at around 5:45.

For those unaware, Kusakabe is 18 and a quickly rising star in the -55kg division.

Ehh, Goodridge and Sapp have made their livings in Japan, they have no reason to trash talk the promotions there. If they come out and say Dream is broke I believe them

No I believe that I just mean with the negotiating numbers.

Yeah, I saw that too. Can't help but think it's a terrible lie, though. Reem is a lamentable dust man.

So Marlon Sandro has signed with Bellator -- though apparently he won't be entering their featherweight tournament. A superfight with Joe Warren would be pretty sweet, though I don't know if they'll go for it right away.

Sengoku has been bleeding talent like crazy, I think they're finished. Jorge Santiago is supposedly on the verge of signing with the UFC as well, and Josh Gross says that they're basically granting release to anyone who asks for it. He also speculates that Hioki may soon be joining the UFC, which would be pretty awesome. That said, it's too bad if Sengoku is indeed dead, they gave us some pretty good fights.

I like that matchup to see if Aoki has improved since Gil manhandled him. Sure McKee isn't on that level but his wrestling is right up there, if he can control Aoki for a decision he has no chance of ever having real success in N/A.

Has anybody heard anything more on Hioki? The UFC should be all over him, he'd be a real threat to Aldo. I'd also love to see a trilogy between him and Hominick, Hioki got both the wins thus far but one was very questionable.

Did anyone catch the Dream fights on the weekend? I no longer get HDnet (a big FU to Bell!) so I missed them.

I read the discussions on junkie and was pretty surprised that Uno beat Wicky. How about the Aoki match, I know he got the neck crank finish but how did he look in round 1? Did he dominate like he did against fancy pants?

I didn't think HDNet was airing the fights live anyway... tape delay until June 3 or something.

Side note - anyone know how I petition Telus to carry HDNet?

DREAM 17:



or, rotated:



Kawajiri is apparently dropping to 145 to fight Hansen, how he's going to do this without looking like a strip of human jerky is anyone's guess though.

Other fights:

I really hope they just put Sakuraba on the poster for the hell of it, once your ear just starts falling off mid-fight I think that's a pretty good indication to call it quits.

The scum bag promoters in Japan will milk Sakuraba until he disintegrates. Sometimes it's up to the promoter to stop the fighter from going on ala Chuck

I'm really interested in seeing how Banuelos and Cullum do in the tourney. Banuelos should do very well in Dream, he's always been a scrappy guy who has losses to some very good guys.

Crusher is going to have to cut a leg off to make 145.
