The debut event for the new Japanese DREAM promotion took place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, while most of us were sleeping.

Notables Mirko Cro Cop and EliteXCs Eddie Alvarez were victorious in their bouts, as well as Hayato Sakurai and Joachim Hansen among others.

However, the big fight of the night between Gesias "JZ" Calvancante and Shinya Aoki ended in controversy. "JZ" apparently landed accidental -- albeit illegal -- blows to the back of Aoki's neck and he could not continue. The bout was ruled a no contest after less than a round of action.

Here are the complete results thanks to

Ikuhisa Minowa defeats Bum Chan Kang via submission (kneebar)
Hayato "Mach" Sakurai defeats Hidetaka Monma via technical knockout (strikes)
Joachim Hansen defeats Kotetsu Boku via unanimous decision Luiz Firmino defeats Kazuyuki Miyata via submission (rear naked choke)
Katsuhiko Nagata defeats Artur Oumakhanov via unanimous decision
Mitsuhiro Ishida defeats Bu Kyung Jung via unanimous decision
Mirko Filipovic defeats Tatsuya Mizuno via technical knockout (strikes)
Eddie Alvarez defeats Andre "Dida" Amade via technical knockout (strikes)
Tatsuya Kawajiri defeats Kultar "Black Mamba" Gill via unanimous decision
Gesias Calvancante vs. Shinya Aoki ruled a no contest

It appears that even though the fight didn't have a clear winner, "JZ" will likely advance to the next round of the lightweight tournament because Aoki was unable to continue.

That means the remaining field includes Hansen, Buscape, Nagata, Ishida, Alvarez, Kawajiri and possibly JZ.

Looking pretty sick. Stay tuned for on official ruling on the JZ-Aoki situation.

Videos will be added after the jump as they pour in.
