DREAM announces Cro Cop vs. Overeem and the return of Kharitonov at DREAM 6

With an urgent need to draw a strong rating for its DREAM.6 event on Sept. 23 at the Saitama Super Arena in order to maintain its broadcast relationship TBS, DREAM has added two major heavyweight attractions just weeks out from the event.

DREAM has made it official that Mirko Cro Cop will be taking on current Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistar Overeem. Additionally, the promotion has announced that former PRIDE star Sergei Kharitonov will be fighting for the promotion against K-1 standout Siala “Mighty Mo” Siligia.

The heavyweight bouts will complement the semifinals and finals of DREAM’s middleweight Grand Prix that will feature Gegard Mousasi vs. Melvin Manhoef and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Zelg Galesic with the winner of each semifinal fighting one another for the title later that night.
