Shinya Aoki Vs. Jamie Varner Or Antonio McKee Likely For DREAM 17

According to a report from MMAWeekly.com it looks like who Shinya Aoki will be facing at DREAM 17 on May 29th is unclear.

After Visa and passport issues forced Willamy Freire out of a scheduled match up with Aoki on Dream's “Fight For Japan” card, a replacement could come in the form of Antonio McKee or Jamie Varner according to the report.

More from MMAWeekly.com on what the decision will come down to:

The decision will likely come down to which route Dream wants to take. “Fight for Japan” is a relief effort following the recent tsunami and earthquake disasters in Japan. Couple that with the fact that the mixed martial arts industry as a whole has been struggling in Japan, and Dream is likely going to factor not only who can reliably make it to the fight, but also the costs involved.
