S4vsbq_medium

From Japan-MMA:

DEEP held an event in Korakuen hall today. It was mainly pro-wrestling, but on the card was a DREAM featherweight GP qualifier.

The fight was between the 2 Pancrase veterans Shoji Maruyama (former Pancrase champion) and Daiki "DJ Taiki" Hata.

DJ Taiki defeated Shoji by [unanimous] decision and by that, qualified for the DREAM GP staring March 8 in Saitama Super Arena.

Here's how the DREAM GP is looking now; the official weight is still unconfirmed but believed to be between 139 and 143 lbs. Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto is also unconfirmed, but it is expected he'll be seeded directly into the second round.
