DREAM lightweight champion, Shinya Aoki and DREAM featherweight champion, Hiroyuki Takaya are set to to throw down on the recently announced April 9th Strikeforce card, likely to go down at Oakland, California’s Oracle Arena.

A source close to the situation revealed the news late Tuesday, however there is no word on opponents as of yet.

Both fighters were last in action on the year-end Dynamite!! card. Takaya defeated then 145 pound champion, Bibiano Fernandes for the title in the main event while a round of showboating and questionable tactics resulted in a shocking knockout for Aoki at the start of the second round, courtesy of the knee of Yuichiro Nagashima.
