DREAM White Cage

Here it is: DREAM’s white cage which will serve as the fighting surface at DREAM.12 on October 25. They’ll also be doing three five-minute rounds instead on one ten-minute round followed by a five-minute round.

It’s not permanent though. According to Nightmare of Battle, DREAM will only hold one special cage event a year which makes me think this is more of a one night ratings gimmick — much like the Super Hulk Tournament with Jose Canseco was — than anything else. However, Strikeforce was apparently influential in the decision to try the cage, so perhaps it has something do with their “alliance.” I don’t know, but moving to a new fighting surface has never been a good sign in the past. We’ll see what happens here.

In other DREAM.12 news, Bellator Lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez vs. DEEP Lightweight champion Katsunori Kikuno and Won Sik Park vs. Kuniyoshi Hironaka are now official for the card.
