04-04-2009, 22:21
Japan’s Fighting & Entertainment Group (FEG) held the weigh-ins today for their DREAM 8 event which is set to go down early Sunday morning, April 5, from the Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan.

An encore presentation of the event will air stateside via HDNet on April 10.
In his first trip to Japan since the demise of PRIDE, Murilo “Ninja” Rua will make his debut for DREAM against DEEP veteran and last-minute replacement Riki Fukuda (13-4).

Rua’s participation was almost drawn to a halt when original opponent Dong Sik Yoon (4-6) got injured just days before the event. However, promoters scrambled for an opponent and found one in Fukuda, though he could not make the middleweight limit on such short notice.

As a result, Rua vs. Fukuda will be contested at a catchweight of 196 lbs.
DREAM 8 will feature Shinya Aoki, Hayato Sakurai and six other combatants in the first round of the DREAM 2009 Welterweight Grand Prix which is expected to meet it’s conclusion in July.
