DREAM 10 update: Mirko sick / off card?

There seems to be a pretty crappy cycle when it comes to Mirko Crocop’s fighting schedule. First he is sick or injured or whatever for a long time, then he comes back and beats up a can and declares he wants to fight 16 more times before the end of the summer. Then he gets injured or sick again and next thing you know he’s fighting once or twice a year and always against warm-up opponents. Here’s the latest permeation of that:

Mirko CroCop, who was planned to participate in DREAM.10 next month, suffered from food poisoning or salmonella on the 19th and was hospitalized. The diagnosis said that rest is needed so a DREAM.10 participation will probably not happen. It seems that Ray Sefo or Mighty Mo were going to be Mirko’s opponent.

I hear chicken is full of all sorts of bacteria, Mirko. Anyways, above is the awesome poster for DREAM 10, and here’s the lineup as it stands:

Vitor Ribeiro vs. Shinya Aoki
Paulo Filho vs. Melvin Manhoef
Andre Amade vs. Katsunori Kikuno

Welterweight Grand Prix 2009 Semi-Finals
Jason High vs. André Galvão
Hayato Sakurai vs. Marius Zaromskis
Seichi Ikemoto vs. TBA (tournament reserve fight)
Winner of High/Galvão and Sakurai/Zaromskis
