Dream revealed that former EliteXC lightweight champion K.J. Noons will return to MMA at Dream 13 on March 22 to face Andre Amade.
Noons hasn’t fought for nearly two years. He is under contract with American promotion Strikeforce, but considering that Dream and Strikeforce often share fighters, it’s not surprising that he would fight in Japan.
Dida currently lost three straight bouts to fighters such as; Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante, Eddie Alvarez, and Katsunori Kikuno, he will try to stop his losing streak by beating Noons. While, Noons is riding a three fight win streak beating opponents such as; James Berto, Nick Diaz and Yves Edwards, he will try to continue his win streak at Dream 13 against Dida.
