Mach Sakurai Injured, Out of FFJ:DREAM.JGPF-2011BWJTF


Sorry, Nation. This will not be happening again this Saturday. VidProps: lsydogma01/YouTube

Well, dammit again. The upcoming (and ludicrously titled) DREAM card took another hit when it was announced that Hayato Sakurai was suffering from a leg injury and would not be able to compete against Marius Zaromskis this Saturday. The non-title bout was a rematch; Zaromskis scored a head kick KO that you’ve not doubt seen (which will not stop us from showing you again) when the two met in DREAM’s welterweight GP event two years ago. Zaromskis went on to win the title with another headkick knockout over Jason High.

Zaromskis will instead meet Pancrase and DEEP veteran Eiji Ishikawa, a journeyman grappler out of Tokyo’s Grabaka gym. Ishikawa’s record carries losses to some guys you know (Hector Lombard, Yushin Okami, Yuki Kondo), a draw with Nate Marquardt (under the Pancrase banner back in 2004), and one win over a guy you’ve ever heard of (a majority decision over Ryo Chonan in 2002). In forty fights, Ishikawa has just six stoppage wins. So … yeah.
Man, what is up with main events in 2011?

"In forty fights, Ishikara has just six stoppage wins." Why are you giving us Ishikara stats, when his new opponent is Ishikawa? Are they related or something?
