    Dream 14 - Kazushi Sakuraba vs Gracie, Diaz, Sakurai, Yamamoto, Tokoro. May 29, 2010

    Dream 14
    May 29, 2010



    Hayato Sakurai vs. Nick Diaz - Non Title
    Joachim Hansen vs. Hiroyuki Takaya
    Ralek Gracie vs. Kazushi Sakuraba
    Norifumi 'Kid' Yamamoto vs. Kiko Lopez
    Ikuhisa Minowa (185 lbs) vs. Imani Lee (325 lbs)
    Yoshiro Maeda vs. Kenji Osawa
    Hideo Tokoro vs. Akiyo Nishiura
    Kazuyuki Miyata vs. Takafumi Otsuka



    This event was originally expected to be held in Seoul, South Korea on April 24, 2010. However, many factors, including the issue that many top Korean stars such as Denis Kang and Hong Man Choi were not available in April, contributed to the Korea event being cancelled. This event will be held in the distinct white cage.

    Freak show event of the night features Minowaman facing 325 lbs kickboxer Imani Lee. Hayato Sakurai vs. Nick Diaz will be a non title fight, as Diaz is a Strikeforce FC welterweight title holder.

    I like Mach Sakurai, but I don't think he has the skill set to beat Nick's awkward boxing (awk-xing?). I'm gonna say Diaz punches Mach silly for about 10 minutes, then chokes him out.


    Also, MinowaMan vs. Freakshow? I thought Dream was over that kind of stuff.

    Considering they originally wanted to match him up with Kimbo Slice, I'd say no...

    Never bet any money on a Sakurai fight. It's pretty much 50/50 as to whether he KOs Diaz with one shot or wanders around the ring looking chubby, breathless and disinterested until an eventual triangle.

    Other than that Hansen, Sak and Kid FTW.

    Uh, Dream just wrapped up an entire tournament dedicated to freak show matchups (which Minowaman won), and his last fight was a freak show match as well. It's not like he's any good against similiarly sized Japanese opponents.

    They gave him a one-dimensional, inexperienced Gracie. That's as close as you can get to free money when you're Saku.

    Norifumi 'Kid' Yamamoto vs. Kiko Lopez

    Hideo Tokoro vs. Akiyo Nishiura
    Kazuyuki Miyata vs. Takafumi Otsuka

    If I thought that Mach was going to show up in shape and ready to fight, I would consider him getting a win. The thing is, he seems to enjoy Korean BBQ more than training now, so I doubt that'll happen. Hansen should beat Takaya, and I'm hoping that Sakuraba will still be in good enough shape to take out Gracie. Kid has an easy fight this time, and it is impossible to bet against Minowaman. The Super-HLUK (not a typo!) champion will never lose his title! Also, I think it's a safe bet that Tokoro vs Nishiura will be the best fight.

    Diaz? This guy is good, but his ganja habit and his uncontrolable personality are gonna get him banned from MMA. Not just the UFC, but MMA in general. What a waste of talent.
