Just when it seemed that the doors were closed on Dream forever, the Japanese fight promotion has resurfaced.

MMAWeekly.com official content partner AsianMMA.com on Tuesday reported that Dream has awakened from its deep freeze with plans to host its annual New Year’s Eve event.

AsianMMA.com sources indicated that plans were already underway for the New Year’s Eve event. A press conference is slated for Oct. 25 to unveil details of the event, as well as plans for the future of the organization.

Dream featherweight champion Hiroyuki Takaya, as well as veterans Tatsuya Kawajiri and Satoru Kitaoka are scheduled to attend the press conference and likely to be announced for bouts on the New Year’s Eve fight card.

Dream as it was is no longer. The promotion was formerly under the ownership of Real Entertainment, which closed its doors earlier this yearAsianMMA.com informed MMAWeekly.com that the New Year’s Eve event and any future Dream plans will be organized under new ownership, which will likely be revealed at Thursday’s press conference in Japan.

The last time Dream, in any form, operated an event was New Year’s Eve 2011. Fight For Japan: Genki Desu Ka Omisoka 2011 featured MMA, kickboxing, and puroresu (Japanese professional wrestling) and was co-promoted by Dream, M-1 Global, and Inoke Genome Federation.
