Also announced was a DREAM.7 (March 8th, not live on HDNet) matchup between Japanese star  Tatsuya "Crusher" Kawajiri (22-5-2) and B.J. Penn protege Ross "The Boss" Ebanez (19-6). Kawajiri's last MMA bout was a DREAM.5 LWGP loss to Eddie Alvarez last July, but more recently, "Crusher" pulled an upset at K-1 Dynamite!! 2008, knocking out K-1 MAX veteran and former Thai national Muay Thai champion Kozo Takeda.

Japan-MMA had this interesting (if somewhat misleading) stat:

Both fighters have faced Eddie Alvarez, and lasted almost to the second as long (7:35 for Kawajiri and 7:32 for Ebanez).
