Former DREAM lightweight champion Joachim “Hellboy” Hansen appears to be looking to jump start his career at 139 pounds, as sources close to the situation have recently indicated to FiveOuncesofPain.com that the Norway based veteran is currently targeted to face off with Bibiano Fernandes for the DREAM featherweight championship.

FiveOuncesofPain.com has further learned from sources close to the situation that the meeting between the two will most likely take place during DREAM 13, although no official word on the event has been released from the promotion as of this writing.

Fernandes clearly established himself as a premier featherweight in 2009 as the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt went on to capture the DREAM 139 pound title with four consecutive wins over the likes of Takafumi Otsuka, Masakazu Imanari, Joe Warren and Hiroyuki Takaya during the promotion’s featherweight grand prix.

Hansen recently fell victim to a Shinya Aoki armbar to relinquish the DREAM 154 pound crown after knocking the “Tobikan Judan” senseless in a previous bout where he originally captured the title. Hansen holds impressive victories over the likes of Takanari Gomi, Gesias “JZ” Calvancanti and Caol Uno during the course of his decorated career.
