Dream continues to remain at the top of the Japanese mixed martial arts since, recently announcing the signing of top heavyweight Josh Barnett. A longtime favorite for the defunct Pride organization, now Barnett has an opponent for his March 12 promotional debut.

Siala “Mighty Mo” Siliga, a prominent K-1 fighter with a 3-1 record in MMA, has signed to face Barnett at Dream 13, according to his manager, Steve Rusich of Triple Crown Fighters. Sports Illustrated’s Josh Gross tweeted the probable match-up earlier this week.

Hunt/Barnett 2 is what it is.

Mo will probably get subbed along the way in this fight. i am interested to see how Barnett will look after a long lay off

I'm almost 100% confident the layoff won't really affect someone like Josh Barnett who has such a storied career.

Unfortunately that "storied career" will now always start with a chapter in giant, bold, italicized letters saying " STEROIDS "

I'm sure even a Barnett with a lot of ring rust should be able to pull off a quick sub. But you never know...

Rest assured that Josh is unlikely to stand and trade and should make short work of a 1st rnd GnP victory.
