Struggling Japanese MMA promotion DREAM has announced match-ups for their 2011 bantamweight grand prix. They are as follows:
Yoshiro Maeda (28-9-2 MMA, 2-3 DREAM) vs. Hideo Tokoro (27-23-1 MMA, 5-6 DREAM)
Darren Uyenoyama (6-3 MMA, 0-1 DREAM) vs. Atsushi Yamamoto (14-6-1 MMA, 1-1 DREAM)
Kenji Osawa (16-9-2 MMA, 1-0 DREAM) vs. Takafumi Otsuka (11-7-1 MMA, 0-2 DREAM)
Keisuke Fujiwara (11-2-4 MMA, 0-1 DREAM) vs. Masakazu Imanari (21-8-2 MMA, 1-1 DREAM)
As one can see, the participants have not had much success within DREAM, but the tournament will provide some much needed momentum for the organization amidst financial struggles.
