Sources close to AsianMMA.com, have confirmed that Real Entertainment, the parent company of the promotion DREAM, has officially shuttered their doors.

While DREAM ended months ago, there was a small amount of talk that something might happen in the future with the promotion.  Apparently, the management of the company has had enough.  The higher ranking officials have all gone their own ways and it was more or less just remnants of an old company.  A decision had to be made, and the shot callers decided that there were no alternatives, but to shut down.

There have reportedly been meetings between former PrideFC brass of reforming in 2014.  Certain stipulations from the Zuffa buyout of PrideFC prohibit some of the management from getting into MMA until 2013, which would be the equivalent of 5 years after the closure of PrideFC, officially.
