Croatian middleweight Zelg "Benkei" Galešić (9-4) will return to the ring for the first time since his 2008 MWGP Semifinal loss to Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, according to an updated DREAM.8 fight card on DREAM's official site. Galešić is set to face karate champion Andrews Nakahara (1-1), who defeated Dong Sik Yoon at the same event last September.
Also added to the show (as previewed by the official poster released yesterday) is what's sure to be a heavy duty battle between two pro wrestlers, Ikuhisa Minowa (41-29-8) and Katsuyori Shibata (2-6-1).
