Aoki vs. Sakurai Rematch Set For Dream.8

Shinya Aoki will get to avenge one of his three losses at Dream.8 on April 5th as he has been booked to face Hayato “Mach” Sakura as part of the Dream welterweight grand prix.

In their lone previous bout, Aoki lost a razor-sharp decision to Sakura. Since then, Aoki has risen to become one of the world’s best fighters in any weight class.

Sakurai is a former UFC veteran and was close to re-signing with the premier MMA promotion before heading back to Japan to resume his career.
