Well this is the kind of thing that happens with companies that don't ever turn a profit.

Damn...

Didn't DREAM receive some kind of financial input? How does a company this big with TV deals all over the world make red numbers anyway? I sure hope they can stick around for a bit. I wouldn't wanna miss seeing their guys fight. I doubt Sengoku would step up if DREAM went obsolete...

they did just get an influx of cash from some new investment group a few weeks ago and making crazy statements like they were going to take over the mma world

WTH!? how can you expect the guy to defend his title when you havent paid him for his last fight? this makes no sense, Sengoku as far as i can tell pays thier guys so why cant dream get thier act together?

Probably for the same reasons that made Pride go under.

So are the Yakuza not raking in enough flow to keep this organization above water? or was that just a Pride FC thing?

I mean no offense to anyone by that question. Although I never watch Dream I'd still hate to see it go in the toilet like Pride did.

Dream has financial problems and has for a long time. MMA is unfortunately not the moneymaker in economically depressed Japan that it used to be. He's far from the first, I know Nick Diaz complained about the same thing last year. They do seem to pay their bills, but they have been late a lot and that suggests they are running on fumes.

This is the worse sign of financial stress from an org.

Alot of fighters will be turned off by it.

I'd consider DREAM on red alert...
