Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) today continued to bolster its upcoming DREAM 15 card with two stellar match-ups for the July 10 event booked for the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Feared striker and longtime veteran of Japanese combat sports, Melvin Manhoef, will look for a "Marvelous" return to the promotion when he opens the light heavyweight grand prix against M-1 and Pancrase product Tatsuya Mizuno.

Manhoef (24-7-1) is coming off a stunning knockout loss to "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler at Strikeforce: "Miami" back in January while Mizuno (7-5) hasn't competed since November 2009 when he stopped Ilir Latifi via technical knockout under the K-1 banner.

The victor will go on to face the winner of Gegard Mousasi and his yet-to-be named opponent.

Also slated for July 10 is a lightweight affair between DREAM and K-1 veteran Gesias Cavalcante and DEEP star Katsunori Kikuno.

Despite an impressive record of 14-3-1, "JZ" has put up goose eggs during his three fight run for DREAM, recently dropping back-to-back decisions to Shinya Aoki and Tatsuya Kawajiri and debuting with a "no contest" against "The Tobikan Judan."

Kikuno (13-2-2) has fared a little better, wrapping two technical knockout victories around a submission loss to Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez.

DREAM 15 will feature a lightweight grudge match between champion Shinya Aoki and challenger (and longtime rival) Tatsuya Kawajiri. Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi is also expected to compete.
