DREAM.17 is slated for July 16 at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, official recently announced.

The event features a championship doubleheader with light-heavyweight champ Gegard Mousasi (30-3-2 MMA, 8-0 DREAM) vs. Hiroshi Izumi (4-1 MMA, 2-0 DREAM) and featherweight titleholder Hiroyuki Takaya (15-9-1 MMA, 6-2 DREAM) vs. Kazuyuki Miyata (11-7 MMA, 4-1 DREAM).

The organization's Japan bantamweight tournament also concludes at the show.

No broadcast plans have been announced for the show.

In addition to the title fights, DREAM's eight-man Japan bantamweight grand prix concludes with finalists Masakazu Imanari (23-8-2 MMA, 2-1 DREAM) vs. Hideo Tokoro (29-23-1 MMA, 7-6 DREAM). Additionally, a third-place fight between semifinalists Atsushi Yamamoto and Kenji Osawa (17-10-2 MMA, 2-1 DREAM) also is slated for the card.

you know, I can hear the mma critics tearing up this card already, but based on the talent available to DREAM, I think this card is actually pretty solid

ps. Sexymiyata will beat streetfight bancho

I agree. I always love DREAM cards no matter who's fighting on them. Usually pretty entertaining. Also, you're right. Miyata will win by decision, that's for sure. Takaya is pretty overrated and does not have a good wrestling base.

Izumi and Mousasi aint bad, and Miyata and Takaya should be awesome. Tokoro and Imanari could be a possible crazy grappling fest.

DREAM NEVER DIE!
