As announced today in Japan, two more MMA bouts have been added to the New Year's Eve card that is shaping up nicely.
Takaya, the reigning DREAM featherweight champion, has won 5 of his last 6, with quality wins over Bibiano Fernandes, and Joachim Hansen. He's had two title defenses, but hasn't fought since the promotion's last event a year ago. Karakhanyan on the other hand, has won 5 straight since his stint in Bellator, winning and defending the Tachi Palace Fights title in the process.
