Ralek Gracie replaces Cacareco at DREAM.4

Alexandre "Cacareco" Ferreira has been pulled off the DREAM.4 fight card due to visa issues that prevent him from entering Japan. He was scheduled to face Russian fighter Alavutdin Gadzhiev.
Ralek Gracie will replace Cacareco and take the MMA fight on short notice. Gracie was originally scheduled to face Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic in a special grappling rules match at DREAM.4. The grappling bout, however, was scratched off the card when CroCop withdrew because of an injury.
Gadzhiev enters the bout off of a stoppage victory over eccentric Japanese fighter Hikaru Sato at Pancrase Shining 2. Gracie's last MMA action saw him armbar Katsuyori Shibata at K-1 Hero's 9.
