Video Roundup: DREAM 17: “Fight for Japan”

You know, stuff like this. Except moving

Last night, HDNet aired their footage from DREAM’s disaster benefit show, which took place last weekend.  Most of you already know what to expect, as results were posted immediately after the event took place, but the fights are worth a quick look. During Aoki vs Clementi Frank Trigg generously guesstimated that a half dozen fighters were mentioned as possible opponents for Shinya Aoki. To be fair, that’s about when we stopped paying attention to rumored opponents for Aoki as well. Unfortunately, we don’t have any videos from the bantamweight tournament semifinal match ups. If we find some we’ll get them up. Videos are after the jump.

Takeshi Inoue vs Koichiro Matsumoto

Shinya Aoki vs. Rich Clementi. At 5:34, Clementi politely informs Aoki that he punches like a girl. Have to admire a guy who can taunt an opponent who is absolutely dominating him.

I thought we all learned from the David Gardner experience not to talk shit while Aoki's on your back.

Aoki always looked like winning this, but those punches to the back of the head were blatant and the referee was very partisan. I generally root for the Japanese fighters, but with Aoki I find it hard to side with the guy. I don't know if it's his fighting style or personality.
