Source: DREAM.8 Pulls a 3.4% Rating, Up From DREAM.7

Promoted from the FanPosts by Kid Nate.

According to Nightmare of Battle, DREAM.8's ratings are in and they fared a bit better than DREAM.7:

DREAM.8 is over and should have fans intrigued with the semifinals and final of the Welterweight GP. The event got a better rating than DREAM.7 with 3.4% compared to DREAM.7’s 2.4%.

This is encouraging. While DREAM.7 had some horrible ratings due to the time slot and some less than spectacular match-ups, DREAM.8 wasn't exactly a blockbuster event either. 

We could probably give the credit to the main event in Hayato Sakurai vs. Shinya Aoki as not only a rematch bout, but also a step up in divisions for Aoki. Both fighters own respective drawing power pushed into one single main event likely had a solid impact as well. 

The good thing here is that many of the other fighters on the event got some added exposure in Japan, and there were definitely some solid fights that could have earned some intrigue from fans. While this isn't unbelievable news, it's much better than the previous events' ratings. DREAM.9 should crush these percentages.
