Another champion has been added to DREAM's upcoming event as DREAM welterweight champion and 2009 Welterweight GP champion Marius Zaromskis will rematch former pound-for-pound great Hayato "Mach" Sakurai in a non-title bout at Fight for Japan: DREAM 2011 Bantamweight Japan Tournament Final.

Prior to their first meeting during the 2009 Welterweight GP, Sakurai had struggled badly to cut the required weight and questions were raised as to his readiness and commitment to fighting. During the bout however, Sakurai traded evenly with Zaromskis early but was eventually on the receiving end of the Lithuanian's signature head kick and was pounded out for the first round stoppage.

Only one real question here: Will a re-match actually motivate Sakurai to train like he actually cares for a change?

Haha, touche.

Edit: Actually, on second thought that's no question. They won't pay.

 The luster has come off of Zaromskis in a big, big way.

Aryan Street Boxer - Yawn...when is the last time Zromski's has won a fight? He just got whooped by a 21 yr old Jordan Mein 2 weeks ago.


 They fed Sakuraba to him on NYE

Mach will crush him.

Zaromskis won that tournament largely because no one had any film on him and didn't know to watch out for the headkick at the end of his combinations. Now that everyone knows it is coming, he hasn't landed one since, and he can't win without it.

Regardless of whether Mach shows up in shape or rolls in after an all-nighter at the Korean BBQ, he won't let the one trick pony beat him again.

Right now everybody is getting whooped by Mein. I don't see Zaromskis in the top WW bracket, but using a loss to Jordan as a validation point doesn't make sense.

Let's not get carried away. Mein got beat less than a year ago by the Jason High and has five other losses on his record to dudes I have never heard of (Ricci, Guillet, Hesson, Manderson, Jenson). He's a good prospect, but that's about as far as it goes.

Haadogei - i would rather see Zaromskis and Sakurai fight some new blood in Japan rather than each other.


What new blood?

It's not like Nippon has been producing a cornucopia of new talent.
