Shinya Aoki's "submission pants" are going to get an extra workout before the DREAM Welterweight GP at DREAM 8. He's just been added to DREAM 7, facing David Gardner in a match where Aoki's WAMMA Lightweight Title likely will not be on the line. Also added is Mitsuhiro Ishida, being considered for an April fight against Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Josh Thomson.

Another first round stoppage for Aoki is in his future. I wish the UFC could pick up Aoki. He's gotten by Alvarez and JZ in Japan, lets see him fight Penn, Florian, etc. Those would be some mega fights.

Be cautious in calling this a booked-to-win for Aoki. I 100% agree he should easily win, but remember what happened last time we said this about a #1 Japanese Lightweight...

I know Gardner from my HS wrestling days. He has a number of fights against some UFC vets, but he's a mid-level fighter. Aoki should dispose of him fairly easily.

Updating this item, Aoki-Gardner will be a catch weight fight at 163.
