While his DREAM date with Brett Rogers was canceled due to a visa issue, Tim Sylvia has found work on New Year's Eve after all as he's been booked for a pro wrestling match with Jerome Le Banner, reported by Heavy MMA.

The bout will be part of the Inoki Genome Federation's contribution to the DREAM show, which features a mix of legitimate MMA bouts and pro wrestling matches featuring current MMA fighters. The card will be aired stateside on HDNet.

Fedor Emelianenko faces Satoshi Ishii in the main event with Hayato Sakurai vs. Ryo Chonan and Shinya Aoki vs. Satoru Kitaoka on the undercard. Josh Barnett returns to wrestling action against Hideki Suzuki on the 17-match card as he awaits the official announcement of his Strikeforce Grand Prix Final bout against Daniel Cormier.

At least Timbo doesn't have to worry about cutting weight.
