Now just minutes ago on Sengoku's official website, the company released a report called 'Future activities of the emergency' which details how SRC lost their main sponsor, Don Quixote, and are now making plans to completely shut down. Here's a rough translation of the report.

This sucks but I kinda expected it. I'm hoping whatever is troubling Dream can be worked out and Japanese MMA can be kept alive.

Japanese MMA has been a huge part of my fandom for many years, so to see DREAM struggle, K-1 struggle and watching Sengoku and PRIDE fall..I will lose a lot of interest in MMA if DREAM folds after Sengoku. This is honestly the worst news in MMA in a very logn time.

It was inevitable... expect to see a handful of new Sengoku guys on the UFC prelims.

A fun org while it lasted. Atleast now their fighters can fight bigger shows and bigger pay days. We're already seeing it with Herman, Mann, Santiago. I wonder where Hioki will turn up.

It's really too bad. The good news is that we will see a lot of these guys in SF or UFC. But it is terrible that now Japan is running out of places to work on new talent.
