According to Denis Kang in an article by The Fight Network, the word making the rounds is that former UFC middleweight Matt Lindland is on the verge of signing with Japanese-based promotion DREAM, a collaboration between FEG and former staff members of PRIDE.

All I have to say is that would be one sick ass tourney!

I hope Dream is legit and land all of the big names that keep getting thrown around. I cant wait to see more Lindland fights. I saw Manhoef on the list too, NICE!!

CroCop/Manhoef is a dream match for me. I would have to assume that Cmill wouldn't mind seeing it either.

This is great news if it comes to fruition, Dana has seriously missed out on not signing Lindland, he is and always will be a top 5 MW guy

He would make a great addition to their GP.

Him, Kang, possibly Zelg, Manhoef, Akiyama etc.
