Eight months after his surprising ouster from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, middleweight knockout artist Gerald Harris has found a new home.

“I’m all healed up and ready to roll. I just signed a multi-fight deal with Dream,” Harris wrote Monday on Twitter. “It’s going to be great in Japan, but business first!”

Harris added that information regarding his debut with the Tokyo-based promotion would soon be made public. Dream’s next event, Dream 17, is expected to take place Sept. 25 in Saitama, Japan.

The 31-year-old Oklahoma native was suddenly released by the UFC in November following a lackluster decision loss to Maiquel Falcao, despite having previously posted a 3-0 record in the Octagon and twice earning “Knockout of the Night” honors. Since his departure, Harris has dropped a close decision to current UFC signee James Head and, most recently, outpointed Strikeforce veteran Anthony Ruiz under the Tachi Palace Fights banner.

Harris has recorded finishes in 15 of his 18 career victories and has been stopped only once, an August 2007 TKO loss to Benji Radach in the International Fight League.

Japan’s highest-profile MMA promotion, Dream has come under fire in the last 12 months for allegedly failing to pay multiple fighters in a timely fashion. On Monday, Harris assured fans that he was not concerned with such a situation arising.

“For those of you who are worried, all the wrinkles have been ironed out and I’m in good hands,” wrote Harris. “Regardless of the past or what you’ve heard... Keep your negative comments about Dream to yourself. I’ve surrounded myself with the right people, so I’m good.”
