Dream Fighting Championship will return this weekend with an entertaining Dream.14 event, held at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event will be headlined by the Welterweight showdown between the Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz and the legendary Hayato "Mach" Sakurai.
Also, "The Gracie Hunter" Kazushi Sakuraba will return to what he does best - and that is fighting a Gracie. The IQ Wrestler will square off against the young Ralek Gracie, who is currently 2-0 in his Mixed Martial Arts campaign. The "Hellboy" Joachim Hansen will try to bounce back from a loss to Bibiano Fernandes against the veteran Hiroyuki Takaya, as an always entertaining superstar Minowaman will square off against the 6' 5" K-1 giant Imani Lee.
The event will also feature the return of the controversial White Cage, introduced for the first time at Dream.12, last October. DREAM.14 will air live on HDNet Fights in the early morning hours of May 29th, at 3 AM ET (Midnight PT).
