With only 10 days left before the event which will crown their new promotion's first-ever Grand Prix champion, FEG have updated the official DREAM.5 site with some interesting undercard bouts now bolstering what was already sure to be a solid night of fights.

- As rumored earlier this week, Yoshihiro Akiyama will square off against Katsuyori Shibata in a middlweight bout, after Shibata challenged the Hero's vet during last week's Akasaka Fight Festival.

- Joachim "Hellboy" Hansen will face Kultar "Black Mamba" Gill in a reserve bout for the Lightweight Grand Prix, in the event that one of the semifinal winners cannot continue after their match. Both were previously eliminated from the tournament by fighters now in the semifinals: Gill in the opening round by Tatsuya Kawajiri, and Hansen in the quarterfinals by Eddie Alvarez.

- Kuniyoshi Hironaka will see his first action since being released from his UFC contract in May. Hironaka, who ran up against some stiff competition in the States and most recently suffered a heartbreaking TKO loss to Jonathan Goulet at UFC 83, is set to face 4-0 Greatest Common Multiple standout Motoki Miyazawa.

- According to Nightmare of Battle, Mark Hunt has also been announced as a participant.

Quality over quantity, my friend.
Oh, and Akiyama via death.

Finals Aoki vs Alvarez.

There should be a fight for 3rd place, cuz I really wanna see Uno vs Kawajiri, Crazy Beef between the two.

as for inventing a new submission. quite possible, if u can tie yourself in a knot, then inventing a new sub should be easy. I say he will go for a Triangle and a kimura on the other arm. call it Tri-Mura.
