Japan’s Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) has announced that WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki is set to do battle with DREAM 2008 lightweight grand prix winner Joachim Hansen for the promotions lightweight strap at DREAM 11 from the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan, on Oct. 6.
This will be the third showdown between the pair.
Their first meeting would go down at Pride Shockwave 2006 which would see “Hellboy” succumb to the ground game of the “Tobikan Judan” and become part of the ever growing highlight reel of Aoki’s by being victimized via gogoplata.
However the second encounter would go a little differently.
They would end up facing off again in the DREAM Lightweight Tournament Final at DREAM 5 in July of 2008.
Aoki was trying to work his ground game as usual, when Hansen decided he wanted no part of it and got back to his feet and threw a earth shattering left punch to the jaw of the still grounded Aoki. This would leave him dazed and prepped for more punishment courtesy of some nasty strikes forcing the referee to jump in and save the helpless victim.
Now a rubber match is in place for one of the combatants to get the upper hand on the scorecard.
Hansen hasn’t competed since his last clash with Aoki in the summer of 2008.

Vet! Al zie ik beide vechters graag winnen. En alhoewel ik een zelf-erkend Aoki fanboy ben hoop ik toch stiekem dat Hansen deze pakt. Wel jammer dat we nog zo lang moeten wachten voor het zover is.

Ik gun Hanssen ook de overwinning... Maar goed.. het is ook moeilijk om Aoki iets niet te gunnen...

Ik zou Aoki graag eens zien knokken in de UFC... tegen Florian en Penn..

Ja dat zou top zijn om hem eens in de UFC aan het werk te zien, maar ik vermoed dat dit een droom gaat blijven. Weet er soms iemand wat ze verdienen bij Dream?

Why is Dream forcing Aoki as their preffered Champ?
I see better Title contenders as Aoki...
my 5 centjes...

Ik hoop op Hellboy Hansen en hoop niet dat de ringrust van invloed is. Aoki is natuurlijk flink bezig geweest na hun 2e confrontatie.
