Tune in this Monday, July 20 for "HDNet Fights Presents: DREAM 10" from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The stacked mixed martial arts event will air LIVE in North America at 3:00 a.m. ET.
For all you sleepyheads and chislers who refuse to shell out the few extra clams for a DVR, you can catch the encore presentation next Friday, July 24 at 10 p.m. ET.
DREAM 10 will feature the semifinals and finals of the promotions welterweight tournament, which was created in a bid to crown a new 168 lb champion.
Japanese mainstay Hayato Sakurai (35-8-2) takes on unorthodox Marius Zaromskis (9-2) and on the other side of the bracket will be jiu-jitsu ace Andre Galvao (3-0) facing off against the explosive Jason High (7-1).
Also in non-tournament action will be WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki colliding with fellow jiu-jitsu ace Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro in what should turn out to be quite a grappling demonstration. Former WEC middleweight Kingpin Paulo Filho and dangerous K-1 striker Melvin Manhoef are also scheculed to hook 'em up.
