DREAM 13: Yoshiro Maeda vs. Cole Escovedo announced

Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) held a press conference at 1PM JST on Friday, March 12, to announce that former WEC bantamweight title challenger, Yoshiro Maeda (25-7-2), will return to the ring against the DREAM debutant, Cole Escovedo (14-4) on March 22 at DREAM 13.

Maeda is coming off a win against Chase Beebe on October 25, 2009 at DREAM.12, where he submitted Beebe via rear naked choke.

Before making his bantamweight debut at “PFC 13: Validation in May 2009, Escovedo was forced into a well documented semi-retiremment in 2007 from a serious staph infection that left him partially paralyzed and in need of spinal surgery. Since the comeback, he has rebounded nicely, not only from the physical affliction but from a three-fight skid as well.
