MMA  > General MMA  > DREAM and Sengoku teaming up to get Fedor?
July 27, 2009, 07:57 AM
From what I have been reading - and most of it are rumors, of course - the UFC and M-1 aren't going to reach an agreement. M-1 wants top UFC HWs to fight Fedor, but outside of the UFC. I don't think Dana White will go for that.

Strikeforce doesn't have the money. At least I don't think they do.

And, between all that, there are talks of DREAM and Sengoku partering up. If that happens, if those 2 organizations come together, it would be huge for MMA in Japan, and for MMA in general.

The idea is that DREAM and Sengoku could put their fighters together and do a Heavyweight Grand Prix, like the old PRIDE tournaments.

Possible fighters would then include:

- Fedor

- Josh Barnett (yup, him)

- Blagoi Ivanov (2008 Sambo World Champion, the man who defeated Fedor in Sambo)

- Fujita (former PRIDE star)

- Kevin Randleman

- Roger Gracie (2005 ADCC champ, current World BJJ HW champ; easily the best HW grappler alive today)

- Jeff Monson

- Antonio Silva (12-1)

- King Mo

- Mark Hunt

- Alistair Overeem

- Ralek Gracie

- Mighty Mo

- Semmy Schilt

- Sergei Kharitonov (another PRIDE standout)


This would be huge if it actually happens. And, to be quite honest, I'd prefer this scenario over the "Fedor in the UFC" one. Because looking at these names (and they're all a part of Sengoku or DREAM's roster) it is clear it would make a better Heavyweight division than the one the UFC currently possesses.

Not only that, but I really want to see Fedor kick Barnett's ****.
