It was announced in Japan early today that Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem will fight on the DREAM card in Japan on July 10th against former UFC Heavyweight Champion Ricco Rodriguez.

Rodriguez has quietly put together a 14-3 record since last fighting on a big stage. The last major organization Rodriguez competed in was EliteXC, where he dropped a split decision to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva back in February of 2008 at the “Street Certified” event.

Overeem is coming off a big TKO victory over Strikeforce heavyweight contender Brett Rogers earlier this year (May 15th) as well as a pretty good string of success, save a few bumps in the road, in kickboxing, fighting for K-1.

The July 10th DREAM event will be held at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
