Two more MMA bouts have been added to the hybrid DREAM 18 and GLORY 4 card for New Year's Eve.

As reported earlier, ONE FC star, and current DREAM bantamweight champ, Bibiano Fernandes is set to compete at the card following a newly formed partnership between ONE Fighting Championship and GLORY. Today his opponent was announced and the #6 ranked bantamweight will be facing current DEEP champion, Yoshiro Maeda.

Fernandes is coming off a back and forth win against top Australian prospect, Gustavo Falciroli. Maeda on the other hand recently defended his DEEP title last August and will be looking for the upset against the talented Brazilian.

The second fight that has been added to the card is between popular fighters, Melvin Manhoef and Denis Kang who are set to clash in a middleweight contest.

I am still disappointed that Bibiano is not in the UFC there is so many good fights for him there. On a side note now that Dream has partnered up with Glory I'm hoping they air on the fight network

are they splitting the fights into sections (like kickboxing first, then MMA) or will they be intertwined?
