'Cro Cop'-Overeem announced for DREAM 6

DREAM today announced three additional bouts for DREAM 6 on Sept. 23 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The big addition is a heavyweight "bad blood" bout between Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Alistair Overeem, who has called out "Cro Cop" for dodging him during their time at PRIDE. Read about that here.

For this fight "Cro Cop" has worked extra hard to improve his defense against guillotine chokes -- an Overeem favorite -- by bringing to Croatia grappling expert Dean Lister.

In the other two bouts, popular K-1 fighter "Mighty Mo" will take on PRIDE veteran Sergei Kharitonov in a heavyweight matchup, and karate champ Andrews Nakahara will fight judo champ Yoon Dong Sik in a middleweight tournament reserve bout.
