HDNet has announced through their Twitter account that former MFC champion Antonio McKee will not face Shinya Aoki at the upcoming Dream “Fight for Japan” card.

The change has not been officially announced by representatives from Fighting Entertainment Group, the parent company of K-1 and Dream. It is unknown if Aoki will stay on the card against a new opponent.

The Dream event takes place May 29 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Earlier this week, the promotion announced McKee as Aoki opponent after a series of rumored opponents.

MMAJunkie has reported that, according to McKee, the fighter pulled out due to trouble obtaining a visa.

After a 15-fight undefeated streak, McKee finally received a shot in the UFC. In his promotional debut, he dropped a split decision to Jacob Volkmann at UFC 125. Recently, the MFC announced that both parties “mutually agreed” that McKee should vacate his MFC title.
