Heavyweight Tim Sylvia

No Brett Rogers, no problem. Because the former Strikeforce heavyweight was denied a visa into Japan to battle Tim Sylvia (Pictured) in Dream’s New Year’s Eve extravaganza, Sylvia will now fake fight Jerome Le Banner on the last day of 2011.

This marks the fourth professional wrestling match on the December 31st card. Dream’s show will also feature kickboxing contests, as well as mixed martial arts action.

Fellow former UFC champion Josh Barnett will also compete in a pro wresting bout.

A heavyweight MMA scrap between Fedor Emelianenko and Satoshi Ishii headlines the show inside the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

HDNet will broadcast Dream’s event live in North America beginning at 1AM ET/10PM PT.
