In a bizarre turn
of events in Osaka, Japan, Joachim Hansen became the Dream lightweight champion
stopping Shinya Aoki in front of an energized crowd at the Osaka Jo Hall.

 

These two met at
Pride Shockwave 2006 with Aoki submitting Hansen, but on this occasion, with the
Dream Lightweight Grand Prix title on the line, it was Hansen that came out
victorious.

 

Eddie Alvarez had
earned his shot in the final by defeating Tatsuya Kawajiri earlier in the
night, but could not compete against Aoki due to an injury suffered in the
Kawajiri bout.
