Dream, the popular Japanese mixed martial arts organization, has just released the seven-bout roster that will make up their Dream.13 event on March 22nd.
As expected, former UFC heavyweight champ Josh Barnett will meet Siala-Mou “Mighty Mo” Siligia inside the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan.
Dream featherweight champ Bibiano Fernandes will be showcased in the event as he puts his featherweight strap on the line against Joachim Hansen.
Barnett single-handedly took down Affliction Entertainment’s humble mixed martial arts promotion last July when he failed a drug test just one week before his highly-anticipated showdown with Fedor Emelianenko at “Affliction: Trilogy.”
“The Baby Faced Assassin” holds an impressive 24-5 pro record and was considered one of the planet’s best heavies before his latest fiasco, however God only knows how many of his wins are tainted with steroid juice as it wasn’t the first time Barnett tested positive.
Mighty Mo, who holds a 3-1-1 professional mark, hasn’t fought in over a year. He was submitted by Semmy Schilt in the 1stRound at “Dynamite!! Power of Courage” in December 2008.
North American fans can watch the show live on HDNet beginning at 3AM ET on March 22nd.
Here is the complete lineup for the event:
Ikuhisa Minowa vs. Jimmy Ambriz
Ryo Chonan vs. Andrews Nakahara
K.J. Noons vs. Andre Dida
Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs. Katsunori Kikuno
Cole Escovedo vs. Yoshiro Maeda
Josh Barnett vs. Siala-Mou “Mighty Mo” Siligia
Joachim Hansen vs. Bibiano Fernandes (Dream Featherweight Champion)
