  4. 8 was exactly where I put Gegard, too.
    Great minds and all that.

    In four minutes of fighting Gegard subbed a top MW striker and KO’d a top MW grappler. Truly a fine night for that man.

    I wish Dream would talk about doing another card (they said 6 was the last of the year).

    my favored Dream.7 card:
    *Akiyama vs Gegard
    *Alvarez vs Noons (could happen, cross promotion fight, he was just stripped of that title of his, which is worth takling about)
    *Overeem vs CC II
    *Sakurai vs Aoki
    *Mayhem vs Saku
    *Hunt vs Kharitnov (Hunt better have a better showing…)
    *Jacare vs Dong

  6. Gutu,

    Cro Cop looked absolutely horrible. Overeem reminds me a lot of Kongo.

    Too bad Mousasi won’t get to test his skills against guys like Marquardt, Okami and Silva.

    I would love to see Mayhem vs. Saku and KJ vs. Eddie.
