"I fight April 5 in Japan and I’m doing my final preparations here. I’m going to Curitiba Saturday and I’ll be back in training Monday. I’m going to fight at DREAM against a Korean."

"Ninja" (16-9-1) hasn't competed since a TKO loss to Benji Radach at "Heat" last October for the now-defunct organization.
