In a match that appeared to be cursed by fate since its announcement late last year, the Dream lightweight semifinal bout between Japanese grappling wizard Shinya Aoki (Pictures) and two-time Hero's lightweight tournament champion Gesias Calvancante (Pictures) came to a definitive close Tuesday.

I've always been a big fan of Aoki's... his grappling skills are some of the best in all of MMA. He made JZ fight his fight and won because of it. His style is so awkward, he's a touch match-up for anybody in the lightweight division.

DREAM has to make Aoki vs. Nick Diaz happen... imagine the level of jiu-jitsu that would be displayed in that match.
