With their Dream.12 event just days away, the popular Japanese MMA organization has finally released the lineup that will be competing inside the Osaka Castle Hall in Osaka, Japan. The star-studded promotion can be seen live in North American homes via HDNet.

The October 25th show will be headlined by a light heavyweight scrap between the iconic Kazushi Sakuraba and the up-and-coming Zelg Galesic, who has been tagged with the moniker of “Little Cro Cop.”

It remains to be seen if that’s a good thing or not, as being called a “Young Cro Cop” instead would signify the potential to be a great fighter one day, however “Little” could simply mean that he is the smaller version of today’s has-been.

Here are the other contestants slated to participate in the night’s event:

Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs. Won Sik Park
Eddie Alvarez vs. Katsunori Kikuno
Chase Beebe vs. Yoshiro Maeda
Paulo Filho vs. Yoon Dong Sik
Keisuke Fujiwara vs. Tomoya Miyashita
Myeon Ho Bae vs. Marius Zaromskis (Non-title bout – Dream Welterweight Champion)
Tokimitsu Ishizawa vs. Katsuyori Shibata
Zelg Galesic vs. Kazushi Sakuraba
