  • Three undercard bouts were announced for DREAM.10 during the intermission of DREAM.9. These bouts included Shinya Aoki versus Vitor Riberio, Melvin Manhoef versus Paulo Filho, and Katsunori Kikuno versus Andre Amade. Following a short promotional video, Shinya Aoki, Katsunori Kikuno, and Hayato Sakurai each entered the ring, and gave brief addresses to the audience.[9]
  • After fulfilling a one fight contract with Zuffa, LLC at UFC 99, Mirko Filipović was rumored to have resigned with FEG for participation at DREAM.10.[10] Siala-Mou "Mighty Mo" Siligia was rumored to be Filipovic's opponent on the card.[11] However, the bout was scrapped after Zuffa Chairman Lorenzo Fertitta flew to Zagreb, Croatia to reopen contract negotiations with Filipovic.[12][13]
