According to Sherdog, American Top Team fighter JZ Cavalcante will take on MMA veteran Tatsuya Kawajiri at Dream 9 on May 26 in Saitama, Japan.

JZ (14-2-1) was last defeated by decision to submission master Shinya Aoki at the DREAM 2, after their first fight was ruled a no contest due to illegal elbow strikes by JZ.

Kawajiri (23-5-2) was defeated by Eddie Alvarez in the finals of the DREAM 2008 lightweight grand prix. Since then he defeated Ross Ebanez at the 2009 DREAM featherweight grand prix opening round earlier this month.
