Dream 2 Wiki Update Wiki

After the successful debut of Dream in March of 2008, the promotion’s sophomore effort kicked off in April with the Opening Round of the 2008 Middleweight Grand Prix, which saw fighters such as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Gegard Mousasi, and Kazushi Sakuraba advance to the Quarterfinals. As their fight from the previous month had resulted in a No Contest, Shinya Aoki and Gesias Cavalcante fought a rematch at Dream 2 as an Opening Round bout in the Lightweight Grand Prix, with Aoki winning a smothering Unanimous Decision and moving on to the Quarterfinals.
