Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Michihiro Omigawa On Deck for DREAM 18 in Japan

A featured featherweight bout between Tatsuya Kawajiri and Michihiro Omigawa has been added to the upcoming DREAM 18 card in Japan on New Year’s Eve.

Since dropping to 145lbs, former lightweight stand out Tatsuya Kawajiri has been perfect as a featherweight. Winning his last 4 bouts in a row with three taking place at featherweight, Kawajiri will look to stay undefeated when he returns later this month.

Following a tumultuous run in the UFC that ended with a 1-4 record over his last five fights, Michihiro Omigawa was released from the promotion and now heads home to Japan hoping for much better results.

Omigawa spent several years fighting there between DREAM and Sengoku, and now hopes to get his career back on track by defeating Kawajiri on New Year’s Eve.

The featherweight bout between Kawajiri and Omigawa is the latest addition to the growing DREAM 18 card, which features several MMA and kickboxing bouts in a co-promoted show along with Glory World Series.
