On July 21st, 12,000 MMA fans packed into Osaka Castle Hall for http://dreamofficial.com/fightcard/dream5/” target=”_blank”>DREAM 5, the Lightweight MMA Grandprix Final for 2008. 15 Mixed Martial Arts contenders, including one of the favorite, Caol Uno (å®‡é‡Žè–°) (å®‡é‡Žè–«), battled their way to become the next Lightweight Champion.
But despite his effort, Caol Uno (å®‡é‡Žè–°) could not advance to final after a hallowing, 2 round struggle against Shinya Aoki (é’æœ¨çœŸä¹Ÿ) during the semi-final round. Still, fans and supporters commended Uno for his all out effort, that despite the lose, it was via: decisions by the judges rather than a submission or TKO.
In celebration of what transpired, http://uno-caol-showten.com” target=”_blank”>UCS (http://uno-caol-showten.com” target=”_blank”>Uno Caol Showten) is releasing a limited set of replica t-shirt worn by Team Caol Uno (å®‡é‡Žè–°).
