The bout will be part of DREAM’s upcoming July 16th “Japan: GP Final” at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan.

Fickett (41-14) recently had his five fight win streak ended at Maximum Fighting Championship 30 on June 10th, as the well travelled fighter was stopped by Brian Cobb in the first round.

Kawajiri (27-7-2) will also be looking to rebound from a first round, stoppage loss, as the Japanese veteran was overwhelmed by Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez on April 9th, after earning a decision win over Josh Thomson in December.

DREAM has also confirmed that UFC and Strikeforce veteran Trevor Prangley will meet light-heavyweight Tatsuya Mizuno on July 16th.

Prangley (23-7-1) is coming off a first round, submission loss to Roger Gracie in January, after working his way to a split decision victory over Keith Sharine at Shark Fights 13 in September.

Mizuno (8-7) is coming off  back-to-back losses to Gegard Mousasi and more recently Sergei Kharitonov, who knocked out the Pancrase vet with a knee on New Year’s Eve.
