    Default Shinya Aoki vs. John Alessio possible for DREAM WWGP

    Rumors have been sweeping the Internet in recent days pointing to a welterweight affiliated with the Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas as being involved in negotiations to fight WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki during the first round of DREAM’s upcoming welterweight tournament.

    FiveOuncesOfPain.com has confirmed through its sources that the fighter in question is former WEC and UFC veteran John Alessio. However, a source cautioned that a deal to bring Alessio into the tournament fold has not been finalized and his chances of signing and fighting Aoki were appraised as being “50/50.”

    Solid matchup for the first round if it happens.

    I thought John Alessio fought at WW? To me he seems a bit too big to be a LW,hes gonna have to cut a shitload of weight to get down to LW.
