warren-beebeSunday’s DREAM 7 had its share of interesting moments, ranging from newsworthy performances to comic finishes.

Chicagoland’s Chase Beebe, who pulled out of the UWC Man of War event on February 21st due to an injury, took on MMA first-timer Joe Warren.

Warren, a Greco-Roman wrestling World Champion currently training at Team Quest, used his Greco background to outwrestle Beebe. While Beebe’s ground game looked superior, Warren landed a knee to Beebe’s head towards the end of the first round which caused a cut deep enough to warrant fight stoppage by the doctor.

Warren will now advance to the second round of the DREAM featherweight grand prix, along with Masakazu Iminari, Hiroyuki Takaya, Yoshiro Maeda, Abel Cullum, and Bibiano Fernandes.

Watch the video from Beebe vs Warren below.

Another notable moment came during a non-featherweight grand prix bout between top lightweight Shinya Aoki and David Gardner.  During the match, Aoki took Gardner’s back, after which Gardner decided to wave to the crowd and say “Hello Japan.” Aoki took this opportunity to slap on a tight rear naked choke and finish the match.
