    I don't have a tv in my room so I missed it- however I got to see some clips on daily motion. from the little that I have seen, it looks like DREAM 2 was a success. Hopefully this is a trend of things to come. I'll pm you a site with some of the fights up.

    How much is a ticket for one of these things going nowadays? I was thinking of catching the next K-1 if it isn't too far away.

    You think you're annoyed? I:m in Japan right now, and I still had to stream the event because the ryokan I:m staying in didn:t have the channel it:s broadcasting on.

    Anyway, regarding the event itself - SPOILERS


















    the Dong match was pretty cool, and Zelg Galesic's post fight interview of "Yeah, after I got armbarred by Dong I realized I should probably work on this 'ground game' thing" was funny, but DREAM 2 overall was pretty underwhelming. Jacare and Saku subbed their inexperienced opponents as expected, Denis Kang got put in a triangle he had no business getting put into, Aoki blatantly cheated while doing very impressive ground work on the way to a win, and Minowa fucking sucked.

    Seriously, didn't Minowa used to be a reasonably good middleweight when he wasn't fighting freakshows? You wouldn't think it watching this match. Kin isn't even good and he still made Minowa look terrible.

    How did Aoki cheat?
    I found the fights on dailymotion but haven't watched yet and didn't read anything about him cheating.

    Yeah, I dunno wassup with Minowa now. He used to be a legit fighter a few years ago, but I guess all the freak show bouts winded him out a bit. Overall, I think it was an alright event. I LOVE the presentation of everything though. Like a PRIDE 2.0 so far!
