Takaya-Beebe, Omigawa-Escovedo, Ishida-Wicky Added to DREAM.16

FEG announced three bouts Monday for DREAM's first domestic primetime event of the year - DREAM.16 to be held on September 25th at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan.

Hiroyuki Takaya will attempt to back up his stunning knockout victory over Joachim Hansen against former WEC Bantamweight Champion Chase Beebe, top ten featherweight Michihiro Omigawa will face former WEC Featherweight Champion Cole Escovedo and Mitsuhiro Ishida will continue his featherweight campaign against Akiyo "Wicky" Nishiura who is coming off a career high TKO over Hideo Tokoro.

FEG are currently in final stages of negotiation with Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto and it looks as though Caol Uno, Bibiano Fernandes and Joe Warren who were originally planned, will not be participating.
