Drew Fickett Overweight Ahead of DREAM BW Japan GP Final

It unfortunately has become rare for DREAM pre-fight weigh-ins to run smoothly and the formalities for Saturday's DREAM Bantamweight Japan Tournament Final, to be held at the Ariake Colisuem, proved to be no exception.

Drew Fickett, who is set to square off with recent Strikeforce and DREAM lightweight title contender Tatsuya Kawajiri, came in 2.2 lbs overweight while Tetsuya Mizuno and Bantamweight GP finalist Masakazu Imanari were late to arrive.

Mizuno and Imanari were cleared to fight after eventually making weight while Fickett, who was unavailable for comment, has one hour to make the cut to 154 lbs.

UPDATE: Fickett made the cut to 70 kg (154.3 lbs) and has been cleared to fight Kawajiri.

Full weigh-in results for the DREAM Bantamweight Japan Tournament Final are after the break.
