    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    A Tale of Dream and Death...

    No, no Lovecraftian or Ashton-Smithian fantasies, at least not this time.

    DREAM, the PRIDE FC successor, and last notable remaining Japanese MMA promotion, has ceased operations as of this morning.

    http://mma-japan.com/index.php?optio...ream&Itemid=93

    I am still waiting for a confirmation via nightmareofbattle.com,
    but it seems indeed as if, after many attempts at new starts,
    DREAM is finally dead.

    With that, the Golden Age of JMMA is, finally, ultimately over,
    as Pancrase and DEEP, the only two notable promotions that remain,
    are really regional shows, nothing more.

    To the past, gentlemen!

    So Zuffa owns like all of MMA now? Such a weird switch from being a boxing fan where there are like a bajillion governing bodies.

    At least we can take comfort in the knowledge that Dana will still have a job in this current economic climate.

    Notably, there's also still DEEP, which is my biggest hope, and of course, Philipines-based ONE FC.

    Also of note are HEAT, ROAD FC, the resurrected RINGS, and Shooto.

    However, quite obviously, none of them are PRIDE.
