Tatsuya Kawajiri is making a move to featherweight, and is set to meet Joachim "Hellboy" Hansen at DREAM 17.

After his failed attempts to get the Lightweight titles in Strikeforce and DREAM, Tatsuya Kawajiri will make his featherweight debut at DREAM 17 against Joachim “Hellboy” Hansen. Dream officials announced the additional match-up to their September 24 event.

Both fighters briefly met in a 2006 Shooto title bout, wherein Tatsuya Kawajiri gained a disqualification victory after receiving an inadvertent kick in the groin from Joachim Hansen.

DREAM 17, which will take place in the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, will feature the promotion’s opening round for its eight-man bantamweight title tournament. Also included in the said tournament is a lightweight tilt between Shinya Aoki and Rob McCullough.
