During today's DREAM 9 event, several announcements were made regarding DREAM 10. Announced fighters for 10 included Shinya Aoki-who will not face DREAM Lightweight Champion Joachim Hansen as was expected, former WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho and his opponent-feared striker Melvin Manhoef. Also announced was current DEEP Lightweight Champion Katsunori Kikuno vs. Andre Amade.

Manhoef vs. filho should be good. im pretty sure Manhoef will take filho's head off in the first round but you can underestmate paulo's jiu jitsu

Have we all forgotten about the pre-WEC Paulo Filho? I think he'll be much more comfortable and back to himself fighting in Japan again.

Manhoef's ground game is pretty much non existant, and Filho's a beast down there.

Hopefully I can get some good odds on Filho.

Yeah, hopefully we can get some good odds on Filho so I can make a ton of wager money.

Aoki is set to fight Vitor Ribiero at DREAM 10.

That should be a good one.

Filho went to rehab so that he could fight in the US.

Now that he's back in Japan, he'll be back at the top of his "game".

And no, that's not a thinly veiled steroid shot at him. But to think he wasn't lackluster against Sonnen to avoid some sort of positive test for whatever it is he likes to take regularly, I personally think is wrong.

He seems Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde when he does or doesn't get his substance of choice and in Japan, he won't have to worry about it.

Great lineup already...Dream is doing a fantastic job putting on quality cards...now they just need to jump into the reality show business to bolster their rosters...and they will be golden

Filho + Fighting in Japan + his head in gear = beating manhoef in the 1st round via submission

Someone will win this inside five minutes. Manhoef's ground game is mostly nonexistant, although, in the Akiyama fight, Akiyama had to run around the ring trying to get and keep him down, and, in the Mousasi fight, Manhoef stood up and slammed a pretty large Mousasi before submitting to the triangle choke. I think Filho will win, but he's going to eat some shots early. Not an easy return from a long layoff.

Intriguing stylistic fight.

Has there been any explanation why Joachim Hansen is not fighting Aoki?

Hasen still has not fought since winning the 2008 Dream LW GP. He pulled out of a scheduled New Years Eve fight against JZ Cavalcante with a mysterious head injury.

What the heck is going on with Joachim Hansen?
