The upcoming DREAM: "Fight for Japan" line-up was tinkered with earlier today as officials announced that former UFC lightweight Drew Fickett will try to "Master" the Japanese MMA scene when he tangles with Tatsuya Kawajiri on July 16 at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan.
Fickett is a late replacement for Willamy Freire, who was busted up in training and forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout against "Crusher."
No word yet on a possible stateside broadcast for the overseas festivities, but often times the DREAM events are replayed at a later date via HDNet.
Here is the current DREAM fight card and line-up for July 16 in Tokyo:
170 lbs.: Marius Zaromskis vs. Hayato Sakurai
205 lbs.: Gegard Mousasi vs. Hiroshi Izumi
145 lbs.: Hiroyuki Takaya vs. Kazuyuki Miyata
