Report: DREAM/Strikeforce lightweight tournament in the works

Real Entertainment, the company that produces DREAM along with FEG, is looking to put together a lightweight grand prix that would feature fighters from the Strikeforce and DREAM roster, according to ESPN.com.

The tournament would not necessarily take place under the DREAM banner and would not involve the financially-troubled FEG, the report says.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told ESPN the following:

We’re committed to keeping our fighters active, but if we can help Dream and have our fighters go over there and participate in their tournament, why not?

While plenty of pieces would have to fall into place, Strikeforce did manage to put together a star-studded heavyweight tournament set to kick off on Feb. 12 in East Rutherfod, N.J., featuring Fedor Emelianenko vs. Antonio Silva and Andrei Arlovski vs. Sergei Kharitonov. Strikeforce and DREAM feature several big name lightweight competitors, including Gilbert Melendez, Shinya Aoki, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Josh Thomson, and Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante.
