DREAM Fight for Japan: Bantamweight Grand Prix is now all set with one additional bout and one altercation.
Last Wednesday, DREAM Fight for Japan: Bantamweight Grand Prix gets an additional bout and one altercation. After Willamy Freire withdrew from the tournament due to hand injury, Tatsuya Kawajiri will now face Drew Fickett on July 16. Also added to the fight card is a light heavyweight battle between Tatsuya Mizuno and Trevor Prangley.
DREAM Fight for Japan – dubbed as DREAM.17 – will feature a championship duel over Gegard Mousasi vs Hiroshi Izumi and Hiroyuki Takaya vs Kazuyuki Miyata. Mazakasu Imanari will square off against Hideo Tokoro at the Bantamweight Grand Prix finals.

Building a fight card for DREAM.16 has faced many hurdles on its way. And though it raised some eyebrows from the media, FEG was able to make form for the event.
Finally! After three weeks out, the DREAM.16 fight card is already shaping up. Last Sunday, Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) revealed some of the matches that will be featured in the event. DREAM Lightweight Champion Shinya Aoki will face Marcus Aurelio in a non-title match, Kazuyuki Miyata will fight against Takeshi Inoue, and Joachim Hansen will try to make his first win at the featherweight versus Hideo Tokoro. DREAM’s official YouTube Channel, on the other hand, confirmed that Kazushi Sakuraba will compete against Jayson Miller.
Kazuyuki Miyata was supposed to have a match versus Sengoku featherweight champion Marlon Sandro, but was scratched off late during the negotiation. The DREAM vs SRC aspect of DREAM.16 was also abandoned after an unsuccessful agreement between DREAM representatives and Sengoku. The event is scheduled for September 25, at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan, and is set to air live in North America via HDNet. DREAM.16 will serve as the final for DREAM Light Heavyweight Grand Prix, and is expected to crown the first champion in the division.
