Aoki vs. Hansen III, Super Hulk Semis + Featherweight GP Finals Set for DREAM.11

Yesterday’s event may have been low on spectacle, but DREAM plans to come back strong for their next show. Here’s what’s on the card for DREAM.11 (October 6th, Yokohama):

— The long-awaited rubber-match between Shinya Aoki and Joachim Hansen. The two top-ten lightweights first met at PRIDE Shockwave 2006, where Aoki took out Hellboy via gogoplata. But Hansen got revenge last July, scoring a brutal TKO over Aoki at DREAM’s lightweight GP finals. Hansen has been inactive since that fight, while Aoki has gone 4-1, earning victories over Eddie Alvarez and Vitor Ribeiro, with his only loss to Hayato Sakurai in an ill-advised welterweight match.

— The semifinals and finals of DREAM’s featherweight grand prix. Bibiano Fernandes will take on Joe Warren, while Hiroyuki Takaya will face Hideo Tokoro on the other side of the bracket; the winners of each fight will collide in the finals the same night.

— The semifinals of DREAM’s freaky Super Hulk tournament. Hong Man Choi meets giant-killer Ikuhisa Minowa, and Gegard Mousasi and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou compete in a relatively legitimate clash of light-heavyweights. The finals will be held at a later date.

— The re-rematch between Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

— A middleweight bout betwen Andrews Nakahara and Zelg Galesic.

— A rumored bout between Gesias Cavalcante and an opponent to be named later.

Nakahara vs. Zelg is as close as we're ever going to get to seeing Machida vs. Cro Cop.

Kid, Sakuraba and Ninja are all rumored to be fighting as well. This is going to be awesome.

hansen's chin is hot sand anyways, but he has awesome recovery. i would stop watching mma if aoki caught him with a high kick..aoki by sub 1st round armlock

choi is gonna get pwnd via mega minowa rolling double leg. but with chois bad knees and minowa's sick leg locks im seeing a quick ending...def first round heelhook

sokoudjou i dont even know what to say about this kid, he needs to start slow for once in his career. he's a 100mph in a tunnel painted on the side of a boulder. mousasi by triangle 2mins into the second.

GC loss halfways through the first...regardless of who it is

Looking forward to Miller/Souza and Mousasi/Sokoudjou. Looks like a very solid card so far.
