Chaos with DREAM

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Too long to translate, but the summary is that between fighters like Masakatsu Funaki losing and Kiyoshi Tamura suffering a finger injury, everything is in a state of flux right now with both DREAM GP tournaments.

In an interview with Michael David Smith of AOL Fanhouse:
