Just hours after MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned that Shane Nelson had agreed to face Shinya Aoki (27-5 MMA, 11-2 DREAM) at DREAM.17, DREAM rep Mike Kogan announced via Twitter that Rich Clementi (40-19-1 MMA, 0-0 DREAM) will instead take on "Tobikan Judan."

Kogan said that verbal agreements are in place and contracts for the contest are expected to be finalized shortly.

I guess Rich is better than Nelson, but really whoever I think they get to face Aoki, that Aoki will win by sub.

This has to be a major factor. Good luck finding someone to fly over to Japan and get a limb removed for free.

Actually, Aoki turned down the Nelson fight. There's an article on mmajunkie.

I don't blame Aoki, b/c I'd prolly want a some-what higher ranked or known/experienced opponent.

I like the match-up. Better than the Nelson match up. Rich will most likely lose anyways. Sorry bvut i got no love for "No Love" here.
