Middleweight Jason “Mayhem” Miller will face Japanese legend Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 16 and the September 25 card in Japan will also feature Gegard Mousasi vs. Tatsuya Mizuno for the light heavyweight title and Joe Warren vs. Michihiro Omigawa, HDNet announced on Friday.
Miller (23-7) was recently passed by KJ Noons for a matchup with Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz and will now return to action overseas after rebounding from a loss to Jake Shields with a May win.
A 42-fight veteran, “The Gracie Hunter” Sakuraba (26-13-1) had his two-fight win streak snapped with a unanimous decision loss to Ralek Gracie in May.
DREAM 16 will be DREAM’s last event before Dynamite!! 2010 on New Year’s Eve.
