It appears as though Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi will no longer be a part of the DREAM “Super Hulk” Tournament card scheduled to resume on October 6.
Multiple sources have recently confirmed the news in a report on MMAWeekly.com.
It seems as though a possible shoulder injury suffered during the grappling exhibition between himself and Fedor Emelianenko during “M-1 Global: Breakthrough” may have had something to do with Mousasi’s recent withdrawal from the tournament.
DREAM officials are reportedly actively pursuing a replacement for the event.
Mousasi had previously been slated to face off with Rameau Thierry Sokodjou on the card. Other participants in the tourney include Ikuhisa Minowa and Hong Man Choi.
