With just about three weeks until DREAM.16, the Japanese-based organization has started to reveal a few details about the fight card.

While a light heavyweight title fight between mini-grand-prix finalists Gegard Mousasi and Tatsuya Mizuno was already assured, three additional contests were announced overnight.

The new contests include Shinya Aoki vs. Marcus Aurelio, "Lion" Takeshi Inoue vs. Kazuyuki Miyata and Hideo Tokoro vs. Joachim Hansen.

DREAM.16 takes place on Sept. 25 at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan, and airs in North America on HDNet.

Aoki (24-5 MMA, 8-2 DREAM), the DREAM lightweight champion, fights for the first time since a July submission win over Tatsuya Kawajiri. "Tobikan Judan" suffered a high-profile loss to Gilbert Melendez in April, but he still stands at 4-1 in his past five contests.

His opponent, Aurelio (20-8 MMA, 0-0 DREAM), is probably best known for choking out then-PRIDE champ Takanori Gomi in a non-title affair in 2006. "Maximus" also fought six times under the UFC banner and now makes his DREAM debut.

I really hope Hell Boy can start a comeback streak.....he's looking pretty shabby lately.

Aurelio is good enough to not get tapped by aoki, but at the same time i dont think he can outwork aoki on the ground or on the feet.
