Default Re: DREAM 18/GLORY 4 NYE shaping up nicely!

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Dec 13, 2012 at 10:10 am ET

Former top-ranked lightweight Tatsuya "Crusher" Kawajiri (31-7-2) will meet big-show vet Michihiro Omigawa (13-12-1) in a featherweight bout later this month.

Officials today announced the bout as part of the "DREAM.18 and GLORY 4 Tokyo New Year's Eve Special" event.

DREAM.18, which features both MMA bouts and the "GLORY 4 Tokyo Heavyweight Grand Slam" kickboxing tournament, takes place Dec. 31 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Shinya Aoki and Antonio McKee headline the MMA portion of the card.

Plans for a possible broadcast in North America have not yet been announced.

Kawajiri, a former PRIDE fighter who's been with DREAM since its 2008 launch, is riding a four-fight win streak with five wins in his past six fights (the lone defeat came in a 2011 Strikeforce title fight with Gilbert Melendez). In his lone bout of 2012, he earned a submission victory over KOTC champ Donald Sanchez at ONE FC 3.
