Dream 3 Press Conference Highlights

SportsNavi had coverage of the Dream day-after Press conference:

Dream Event Producer Sasahara was asked about the possibility of Kimbo Slice possibly fighting on a dream card, despite him being unknown in Japan. He was also asked if EliteXC's female superstar Gina Carano might be a possibility.

Dream Event Producer Sasahara: " Certainly, now Kimbo Slice is perhaps namelessness. But, like Mayhem Miller yesterday, there is a possibility where it can grasp the heart of the fan with 1 appearance'

In regards to the woman fighter, at present time, no. Now ' DREAM ' is in the process of growing. When ' DREAM ' has reached maturity, we would think of adding women fighters at that time."
