ProElite and DREAM have entered into a partnership that will see fighter exchanges and possibly co-promoted shows.

T. Jay Thompson, the head of fighter operations for ProElite, leaked the news while stopping by Tuesday's installment of The MMA Hour.

"We will be partnering with DREAM not only with a fighter exchange program," Thompson told host Ariel Helwani. "But some serious talks about bringing DREAM to the U.S. and bring ProElite to Japan."

"With the brain power and relationship between (ProElite matchmaker) Rich Chou and I, we're going to put on high-quality MMA cards," Thompson said. "And the matchmaking styles leads into some of these great Japanese fighters."

Maybe now Sylvia can get his revenge for getting jacked by Jerome Le Banner in a pro wrestling match on New Years Eve. Did you guys ever see that card. It was fucking bizarre.

Yup. Bizarre doesn't do it justice. And watching it so stoned I could barely keep my eyes open while chatting with a bunch of guys from the Playground made it that much crazier.

I still don't think that card actually happened. It was too weird to be real.

Oh and on topic, partnership will be awesome.

ProElite's new owners have great financial backing to pull in quality fighters and while DREAM may have entertaining fights for the Japanese audience, almost none are relevant to division rankings. This will allow much better fights for both.
