According to CroCops Official Blog:
A little over an hour ago I was contacted by DREAM officials. They informed me that my opponent on March 15 will be Yoshihiro Nakao from Japan. It was very important for me to fight as soon as possible and I’m happy that DREAM was able to find the opponent for me.
A quick side note, Nakao was the fighter that “kissed” Heath Herring at the stair-down of the 2005 K-1 Dynamite show , Herring then dropped him with a quick right hook. The fight was ruled a NO Contest. Here’s the video.
