Marius Zaromskis Agrees to DREAM Return in May

DREAM welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis has agreed to return to action for the Japanese-based promotion at DREAM.15, MMA Fighting has learned from sources close to the organization. The event, which has yet to be officially announced by the DREAM, is scheduled to take place May 30 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

No word on who Zaromskis will face just yet, or even if his 170-pound title will be on the line.

Prior to his January Strikeforce title shot against Nick Diaz, the Lithuanian-born fighter had agreed to face Kiyoshi Tamura at DREAM.13, but that fight fell through for unknown reasons.

Zaromskis, who captured the DREAM title after winning the Grand Prix last July, lost via 1st round TKO to Diaz.

No other fights have been officially announced for the card, however, MMA Junkie reports that Renato "Babalu" Sobral will compete in the first round of the light heavyweight Grand Prix on the same event. Gegard Mousasi told MMA Fighting in January that he also hoped to compete in the tournament.

DREAM.13 takes place this Sunday, while DREAM.14 is set for April 24.
