SAITAMA, May 11, 2008 -- American wrestler Eddie Alvarez beat Norwegian shooto fighter Joachim Hansen in a thriller; while Japanese mixed martial arts legend Caol Uno won in the Main Event at tonight's DREAM.3 Lightweight Grand Prix 2008 2nd Round.
Held at the Saitama Super Arena, the event opened this year's DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix series. Fourteen of the world's top mixed martial arts fighters battled for the right to advance to a final elimination tournament on June 15 and a chance for a spot in September's DREAM Middleweight GP Final.
This was a classic eight-man elimination tournament -- all bouts contested under K-1 Rules (3Min. x 3R w/1RExt.), a quartet of first-tier fights advancing four men to a pair of semis, and the winners there going head-to head in the final.
