Dream 6 took place
on Tuesday night in Tokyo, Japan, featuring the middleweight grand prix
semi-final and final rounds.


Gegard Mousasi
wasted no time as he made his way through the semi-final round and was
victorious in the final in a combined time of just three minutes and 43
seconds. Mousasi claimed the championship by finishing Ronaldo “Jacare” Souze
by knockout following his submission of Melvin Manhoef.


Mirko “Cro Cop”
Filipovic made his long-awaited return in a grudge match of sorts with Alistair
Overeem. Their conflict did not come to a conclusion, however, as the fight was
ruled a no contest when two knees to the groin left Cro Cop unable to continue.
