Thousands and thousands of MMA fans were very disappointed and still feel the pain of loss from PRIDE FC being taken away from them. PRIDE FC was a Japanese MMA organization that entertained fans for years and was the breeding ground and platform to stardom for such great fighters as Fedor Emelianenko and Mirko Filipovic, not to mention countless others. However, out of the ashes of greatness have arisen two new Japanese-based MMA organizations and one of them, DREAM, will be holding it’s sixth event late tonight/early Tuesday morning.

All of the fighters for the DREAM 6 event at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, have successfully made weight. The fighters stepped on the scales earlier today at the East 21 Hotel in Tokyo, Japan. DREAM 6 will feature the semifinals and finals for the DREAM middleweight grand prix.
