DREAM today has confirmed a fight between Tatsuya Kawajiri and Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante for DREAM 9 on May 26 as well as raising the stakes. The winner is in line for a title shot on 12/31 after a title fight between DREAM Lightweight Champion Joachim Hansen and Shinya Aoki at DREAM 10 in August. Aoki's WAMMA Lightweight Title likely will not be on the line.

The articles I've read on this are very confusing, I first read on 411 that the Kawajiri-JZ winner gets Aoki in August, that would be for the WAMMA Title, but Junkie (above source) says different. Either way, good matchups coming.

I thought Tatsuya Kawajiri was fighting JZ?

JZ's name is Gesias Cavalcante

JZ is just Gesias's nickname. So whenever someone mentions Gesias like I did, it's JZ.

Some more clarifications on the title situation from Weekly and Nightmare Of Battle:
Hansen-Aoki at DREAM 10 (August) will be for the DREAM title and likely not the WAMMA Title or even both.
The Hansen-Aoki winner will defend against the Cavalcante-Kawajiri winner at the "Dynamite!!" NYE show.
