FEG could look to sell DREAM

The cancellation of the LHW Grand Prix has led to renewed rumours that FEG could look to sell DREAM should Zuffa be one of the bidders?

I doubt Zuffa would have that much interest in Dream, the truth is they don't have a strong roster of fighters that could be assimilated into the UFC the way Pride did, who are the dream matches fans are lined up to see between Dream and the UFC? The UFC and Pride were seen as equals nobody is considering Dream to be the UFC's equal.

What would be best for UFC, in the event that DREAM crumbles, wouldn't be to buy the organization but rather to just pick up some of the most notable fighters from the LW division to bolster the UFC's weakest division: e.g. Eddie Alvarez, Joachim Hansen, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Shinya Aoki, Gesias Calvacante. Obviously some of these wouldn't want to come over in the event of a DREAM collapse, and some have contract obligations in other orgs at the moment, but even if UFC brought in a few of these fighters it would at least add talent to the LW division and, if they fail, simultaneously crush the opinions that some loons have that the UFCs LW division doesn't have most of the best fighters. other divisions notable fighters that could be up for contracts after a DREAM collapse:
WW: Marius Zaromskis
HW: Alistair Overeem (if he ends up passing the steroids test for Strikeforce Heavy Artillery and somehow loses to brett...i'm not sure about the details of his contract with SF so this might be impossible).

The UFC should focus on growing their product in new markets. If the major MMA promotion folds in Japan, the market will seek the product. That's the time the UFC swoops in and fills the void, no buyouts, little marketing, instant success. The MMA market in Japan is already well established, the UFC doesn't need to create it.

Seeing Dream fall would be a huge win for the UFC, since it would open a chance to expand their organization to Japan, where MMA is pretty well established.

they have just cancelled the LHW tournament, so i dont think they having a LHW belt anytime soon, unless they just put 2 guys straight in for it.

Zuffa wont even look to buy it, not after they wasted a shit load of money buying pride that got them nothing but some old videos. Pride was already on the way down and most of the fighters that they got would of joined UFC anyway after Pride crumbled.

Japanese MMA is dying fast, Dream and Sengoku were thier last chances at success and now it seems that they are fading away with no big match ups to sell. I mean who have they got that hasnt already fought each other? Aoki v Kawajiri is the biggest fight left and thats has been damaged after Aokis dissapointing loss to Melendez.

I think zuffa may have enough to contend with, with WEC already, all I can hope is that an independant org can come in and be the place where we see the major fights we've all been waiting for that the current orgs haven't been able to put on with Fedor vs Randy etc.

MMA is established in Japan, but it's dying. UFC would be better off focusing on markets that are more eager for MMA and are rising in terms of purchasing power, like China or Korea.
