DREAM announced last week that they would be holding their first event of the year – DREAM 17: Fight For Japan on May 29th.

Since then news has been trickling through about who will be fighting at the show, and today three more bouts were announced.

First up, former DREAM lightweight champion Joachim Hansen will take on Mitsuhiro Ishida, with both men looking to improve on their current two fight winning streaks.

Meanwhile, former UFC fighter Caol Uno will also return to the DREAM ring to fight Akiyo ‘Wicky’ Nishiura, with the two Japanese fighters craving a win after notching more than a few losses on their CV’s in the last few years.

Update: Japanese star Shinya Aoki is also expected to take onĀ  Willamy Freire who was recently released from the UFC after just one fight, a loss to Waylon Lowe.
