WVR also announced 2 more fighgs, Ryokawamura vs Antonio Braga Neto and Fabricio "Pitbull" Monteiro vs Nick Thompson.

Thank you for your work. It's much appreciated!

WVR looks very interesting. They seem to want to make MMA into more of a respected sport, and less of a spectacle like PRIDE. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but I look forward to seeing the card.

Gomi vs. Ludwig is a very exciting fight. It's very hard to predict, but I think Gomi will take it.

Also, Kazuyuki Fujita signing with WVR is interesting as well. Although it's a shame the great Japanese (and foreign) MMA talent is being divided between WVR and the new group that's forming from FEG/Ex-DSE.

Thank you for your comment, Steve.
Yes I agree. I hope DREAM and WVR work together and make a big event, or they allow fighters fights in other events,,,
