Fresh off his Dream.10 win, Shinya Aoki will get first crack at Dream lightweight champion Joachim Hansen’s title. With each holding an impressive win over the other, Dream.11 just got very interesting.
Hansen captured the lightweight crown when he defeated the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu wizard in their most recent bout at Dream.5 last July. However, Aoki had the upper hand going into that fight, having caught Hansen in a wicked gogoplata at Pride: Shockwave 2006.
Hansen was set to pop the cherry on his belt against Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante last December, however was forced to pull out at the 11th hour after he was hospitalized for concussions.
Dream.11 takes place on October 6th and will also host the final rounds for their Featherweight Grand Prix, as well as the second round of their Super Hulk Tournament.
