Japanese fight fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
Reports surfaced earlier today that a portion of the DREAM 14 fight card was being removed, specifically the planned light heavyweight tournament featuring Gegard Mousasi, Renato Sobral, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, among others, leading to speculation that the entire May 29 card was in jeopardy.
Representatives from Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) today told MMAmania.com that DREAM 14 will continue as planned and that the promotion has removed the light heavyweight grand prix in order to restructure the format of the tournament for a later date.
An official announcement can be expected in the near future as well as some "surprises" for the still-developing fight card.
Here is the current line-up for DREAM 14, which takes place on HDNet from the Saitama Super Arena on May 29 in Saitama, Japan.
170 lbs.: Nick Diaz vs. Hayato Sakurai
145 lbs.: Joachim Hansen vs. Hiroyuki Takaya
145 lbs.: Akiyo Nishiura vs. Hideo Tokoro
155 lbs.: Kazuyuki Miyata vs. Takafumi Otsuka
