Dream.8 took place early Saturday evening in Nagoya, Japan. Unfortunately for you die-hard Japanese MMA fans, HDNet chose not to air this event live. If you didn’t want to wait for the Friday replay, we got a hold of two of the night’s more exciting bouts courtesy of some YouTube patrons.

WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoiki was upset by Hayato Sakurai in the 1stRound of their contest. Sakurai showed once again that MMA isn’t just about Jits as he landed four vicious knees to Aoki’s grill that put the grappler to sleep.

Former UFC top heavyweight contender Jeff Monson caught Sergei Kharitonov in a rarely-seen north-south choke submission in the 1stRound of his affair.

Those are the most notable fights available on YouTube. We’ll all just have to wait until April 10th to catch the rest of the card on HDNet.
