Shinya Aoki at Dream 6

Shinya Aoki at Dream 6

Dream has added two new fights to the upcoming Dream 17 card in September including lightweight champion Shinya Aoki taking on former WEC champion ‘Razor’ Rob McCullough.

Since losing to current Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez in April 2010, Shinya Aoki has gotten his mojo back, winning his last five fights in a row.

Aoki last fought in late may where he defeated former UFC lightweight Rich Clementi in the 2nd round.

Now Aoki will take on another American when former WEC lightweight champion ‘Razor’ Rob McCullough takes the trip to Dream 17.

After exiting the WEC in 2009, McCullough picked up two wins before entering the Bellator lightweight tournament earlier this year where he was promptly eliminated by Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire by TKO.

He’ll try to reverse his fortunes against a very tough opponent in Shinya Aoki.

Also added to the Dream 17 card is a bout between Satoru Kitaoka and former WEC fighter Willamy ‘Chiquerim’ Freire.

Kitaoka enters the bout on a three fight win streak picking up victories in both Pancrase and Deep, while Freire makes his long awaited debut in Dream following his release from the UFC in early 2011.
