Gegard Mousasi has plenty of options when he faces Renato “Babalu” Sobral at Affliction “Trilogy” in on Aug. 1. The Iranian-born resident of the Netherlands believes it’s important to fight opponents at their weakest points. In his last showing at Dream 9, against Mark Hunt, he did just that, taking the giant striker down and cinching a quick submission. Against brawler Melvin Manhoef… the same.

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal vs. Don Frye signed for M-1 Global's first "major show" on Aug. 28
Ready to host its own major shows (rather than co-promoting with other organizations), M-1 Global will kick off a new era of fight promotion on Aug. 28 with a main event of top prospect Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (4-0) vs. MMA trailblazer and legend Don Frye (20-7-1). Sources close to the negotiations today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) bout agreements have finally been signed for the previously rumored matchup. The event, "M-1 Global Presents Breakthrough," takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. An HDNet official today told MMAjunkie.com the event airs live on the all-high-definition cable station. The show, which takes place on the eve of UFC 102 in Portland, Ore., is being held in conjunction with IMMAE, an international MMA expo and trade show. M-1 Global, a Russian-based organization, is perhaps best known for its "M-1 Challenge" event series, which M-1 officials bill as the "World Cup of Mixed Martial Arts." The series uses a country-vs.-country format for team competitions. However, while popular with many overseas locations, the event series has experienced minimal success in the U.S. However, event organizers want to penetrate the lucrative U.S. market, and they plan to use a non-team event series (similar to the UFC and Strikeforce) for some future shows. M-1 has traditionally teamed with Affliction Entertainment to co-promote events but will go solo on Aug. 28. Many major names have fought under the M-1 banner – including heavyweight kingpin Fedor Emelianenko – and could be options for future shows. The first event, though, will feature two newcomers to M-1

DREAM 11 Pushed Back To October 6
Despite previous reports of a September 23 date, DREAM announced today that DREAM 11 has been pushed back to October 6. No reason given for the change but it could be because of World Victory Road Sengoku 10 being scheduled for 9/23 as well. The originally scheduled fights for September will still happen on the new date (Super Hulk semifinals, FWGP Semis & Finals and likely Jason Miller vs. Ronaldo Souza 3 for the Middleweight TItle).

DREAM 10: Paulo Filho and Melvin Manhoef Seek Redemption
In non-Grand Prix action on July 20th's DREAM 10 card, heavy-handed Dutch K-1 kickboxer Melvin Manhoef (23-5) will battle it out in the MMA ring against Brazilian jiu-jitsu powerhouse Paulo Filho (16-1). Both middleweights are coming off stunning losses. Filho fell to Chael Sonnen at WEC 36 after failing to make weight and having mental health issues. Manhoef was upset by Keijiro Maeda at the K-1 World GP 2009 leg in Yokohama, Japan. Manhoef managed to fight a month-and-a-half later on the "It's SHOWTIME" card in Amsterdam, but he was being outstruck by Stefan Leko until Leko hurt his leg in the third round. Manhoef escaped with the victory.

Jesse Taylor fighting at DREAM 10 this weekend
JT Money has done well in the United States and is now taking his show all over the world. After defeating Rubén Darío on Saturday in Mexico City Taylor will compete this weekend against Korean Judoka Dong Sik Yoon in Japan. Taylor has won six straight fights since being released from the UFC and is looking for #7. Despite the solid 11-3 record Taylor is best known for his antics after The Ultimate Fighter finished taping when he bashed in a window of a limo and was booted from the competition despite being in the Finals. Yoon has lost his last two fights after winning five straight. He holds a victory over Melvin Manhoef and lost a decision to Rampage Jackson in 2006.

With Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez out, "JZ" Calvancante wants Joachim Hansen at DREAM.11
Gesias "JZ" Calvancante (14-3-1) won't get his first choice of an opponent, but he's got a second pick in mind for DREAM.11. Although initial plans to fight Eddie Alavarez fell apart when the slugger won Bellator Fighting Championships' first-ever lightweight title earlier this year, Calvancante hopes he can now score a fight with notable Joachim Hansen (19-7-1) instead.

Report: While Eddie Alvarez out, Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante still in for DREAM.11
With rumored opponent Eddie Alvarez (18-2) making it clear a DREAM appearance wasn't in his immediate plans, American Top Team's Gesias "JZ" Cavalacante (14-3-1) said he's still in for the as-yet-unannounced DREAM.11 event. Cavalcante recently told Tatame.com that he still plans on fighting at the event, which is expected to take place in September. "They offered me Eddie Alvarez and I was excited, but it seems that he's injured or had some other problem and won't be able to fight in the event," Cavalcante told Tatame.com. "I'm confirmed in DREAM.11, but I still have no opponent." While DREAM had hoped to arrange the matchup for Cavalcante, Alvarez's agent, Monte Cox, recently told MMAjunkie.com his client's recent championship run with Bellator, coupled with a need for some much-deserved time off, would prevent the American from competing at DREAM.11. Cavalcante will bee seeking his first win since September 2007. The Brazilian slugger has gone 0-2 with one no-contest in three appearances for DREAM. That difficult stretch followed a string of 13-straight bouts without a defeat for Cavalcante between 2004 and 2007. DREAM.11 will also feature the semifinals of DREAM's "Super Hulk" tournament and featherweight grand prix.

Bloody Elbow Exclusive: An Interview With "The KCbandit" Jason High
The "KCbandit" Jason High, is one of the brightest and most exciting up-and-comers in MMA. He burst onto the national and international scene winning his first six fights, with only one fight going the distance. His first and only career loss was against Jay Heiron in Affliction: Day of Reckoning. He then rebounded at DREAM.8 by submitting Yuyi Shirai in less than a minute to move on to the semi-finals of the DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix. On July 20, DREAM.10 will host the final round of the welterweight grand prix, which will crown the promotion's first welterweight champion. Jason High, the only American in the tournament, is matched-up against the highly decorated jiu-jitsu world champion, Andre Galvao. On the opposite side of the semi-final bracket is a match between, Hayato "Mach" Sakurai and Marius Zaromskis. Staying true to tradition, the winner of both bouts will face off later on in the same night for the DREAM Welterweight Title.
