So it was announced by DREAM. Gracie was originally scheduled to face Mirko Cro Cop in a special grappling rules bout but Filipovic pulled out late due to “injury.” Don’t mind the quotes, I’m sure it was just a typo.
Cacareco‘s departure has been blamed both on problems obtaining a visa (his team) and him simply pulling off of the card due to jet lag (DREAM). BloodyElbow has a blurb as I’m sure which side most of us will come down on this.
Current lineup for late, late Saturday night’s show:
- Shinya Aoki vs Katsuhiko Nagata (LWGP)
- Alistair Overeem vs Tae Hyun Lee
- Ralek Gracie vs Alavutdin Gadzhiyev
- Hideo Tokoro vs Darren Uyenoyama
- Dong Sik Yoon vs Gegard Mousasi (MWGP)
- Zelg Galesic vs Taiei Kin (MWGP)
- “Mayhem” Miller vs “Jacare” Souza (MWGP)
- Kazushi Sakuraba vs Melvin Manhoef (MWGP)
