Marius Zaromskis vs Kiyoshi Tamura in the works for DREAM 13

Mma_sd_zaromskis_576_medium

Marius Zaromskis (13-3), who is set to battle Nick Diaz for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title tonight at "Strikeforce: Miami," will have little time to unwind after tonight.

We reported earlier that the "Whitemare" has been named as a possible participant in the upcoming DREAM 13 on March 22. It now looks like he will defend his DREAM welterweight title against Kiyoshi Tamura (32-13-3) at the event.

According to MMA Fighting, DREAM is close to signing the bout. Needless to say, Zaromskis-Tamura is contingent upon Zaromskis' medical condition after his fight with Nick Diaz: Should he sustain a serious injury, the fight may be called off.

Zaromskis, a Lithuanian native training out of London Shootfighters, catapulted himself to fame when he emerged as a winner of the DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix. DREAM 13 will mark the first time he puts his DREAM belt on the line.

Tamura, who competed for United Wrestling Foundation in his professional wrestling days, launched his MMA career in 1995 with a heel hook win over Patrick Smith. The 40 year-old has since fought mainly in RINGS and Pride. In his last fight, he earned a dominant decision victory over Kazushi Sakuraba at Dynamite!! 2008. Having fought opponents from a diverse range of weight classes (from welterweight to heavyweight), Tamura makes his official welterweight debut at DREAM 13.

DREAM 13 will take place at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan, and it will air live on HDNet in North America. Bibiano Fernandes will also defend his 145-pound belt against Joachim Hansen on the card.
