After decades of ring action, Dream will officially introduce Japanese MMA fans to the world of the cage. The organization will debut “The White Cage” for their Dream.12 event on October 25th.
Dream had previously stated they had a “surprise” for their fans and have just dropped the bomb after months of teasing. DREAM.12 will take place in a six-sided fenced surface, similar to the UFC’s Octagon but with two less sides.
Thus far, nine participants will be competing at “Cage of the Rising Sun,” including lightweight sensation Eddie Alvarez, Paulo Filho, Katsunori Kikuno, Yoshiro Maeda, Andrews Nakahara, Alistair Overeem, Kiyoshi Tamura and Marius Zaromskis.
Potential opponents for the nine participants were not revealed.
DREAM.12 will mark the second of two October shows for the company as DREAM.11 is slated for October 6th and features the organization’s “Super Hulk” tourney, as well as the finals of their Featherweight Grand Prix.
Both events are expected to air on HDNet in North America, however no official word on if they will be live or not.
