The news of the anticipated lightweight match-up comes courtesy of a recent report on

Aoki bounced back from a welterweight TKO loss at the hands of Hayato “Mach” Sakurai at DREAM 8 by besting Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro by unanimous decision on July 20 at DREAM 10. The “Tobikan Judan” is widely respec

ted as one of the most dangerous submission artists in the game and has only suffered two defeats in his last seventeen bouts.

Hansen’s last trip to the ring saw him avenge a loss to none other than Aoki at DREAM 5 to win the DREAM lightweight grand prix. Aoki submitted Hansen in the first match between the two with a nasty gogoplata at PRIDE Shockwave 2006.

Also expected for the card will be the featherweight grand prix semifinals and finals, the Super Hulk semis and finals, and a DREAM middleweight championship bout between Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

    Aoki vs. Hansen is a big fight. Things are getting better for the MMA World. So many tough competitors are coming up. It is making this support reign supreme over any other combat sports. I’d love to see either guy fight some top competition in the UFC, I bet they can hang and deliver.

    I just watched Dream 10 and saw Aoki fight for the first time live. Unfortunatly he didnt really use his ground game at all vs Shaolin. I did appreciate how he stuck to a game plan. Also looking forward to seeing Mousasi vs soko, that should make up for having to watch Jose Canseco fight.
