Shinya Aoki Draws Willamy “Chiquerim” Freire At Dream 17 in Japan

http://ht.ly/4GBJ7

Quote:
Shinya Aoki has his opponent for the upcoming Dream 17 show in Japan as he will face former UFC lightweight Willamy “Chiquerim” Freire on the May card.

Sources close to the negotiations confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Shinya Aoki (27-5) returns home to Japan after a successful turn in Strikeforce for his last fight, where he defeated Lyle Beerbohm by submission. Aoki erased the memories of his disastrous New Year’s Eve showing where he was knocked out in mixed rules fight against Yuichiro Nagashima.

In traditional MMA however, Aoki has won his last four fights in a row including a quick submission over Tatsuya Kawajiri last year.

Stepping into the lion’s den to face Aoki on his home turf will be former UFC fighter Willamy Freire (18-4) who ended up with only one fight in the Octagon, a decision loss to Waylon Lowe in January.

Outside of that loss, Freire had won 11 fights in a row including a victory over current Bellator upstart Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.

The bout between Aoki and Freire will be a featured bout alongside the first rounds of the Dream Bantamweight Grand Prix.

Somehow I think Aoki is almost always one of the first fighters to get paid in Dream. He always comes back. Basically they pay their bigger name fighters first and pay their minor fighters later on.

Kikuno looks totally different in a suit.

Chiquerim isn't fighting Aoki on this card after all. Couldn't get his visa.

So who is Aoki fighting then? Either way it should be interesting considering Aoki has gotten a rebound win. And visas are a pain.

It looks like Aoki will face Antonio McKee or Jamie Varner:

Basically Dream wants to pamper him now. He got a few losses and now they don't want to risk their golden boy loosing. I wonder what they are going to do when Strikeforce folds.

Here is a new promo for the next DREAM show, if you go to youtube to watch it it's Hd:



By the way, Japanese MMA fans... there will be a pick 'em contest for this DREAM show where you can win mucho credits. If you want to play it will be up a week before the event in a new thread, and the game will be easier than Bellator pick 'em, and much much easier than the CPL
