Stateside Japanese MMA fans are hardcore; They stay up until 10:00am watching DREAM because at any moment, a random Japanese demigod could parachute out of the sky and into the arena. Confusing video montages, extravagant walkouts, the most colorful rosters in the business, they collectively play into a mystique that can only be categorized as JMMA. For those of you with deep pockets and little to no day-to-day responsibility, ballerishly flying to Japan to see the spectacle for yourself is a reality. For the rest of us who dig through our sofa cushions for taco money, T. Jay Thompson just appeared on today’s episode of the MMA Hour (http://www.mmafighting.com/2012/01/17/the-mixed-martial-arts-hour-is-back-in-your-life/) to announce a partnership of ProElite and DREAM. The plan will is to structure the deal similarly to that of Strikeforce’s pre-Zuffa deal with the FEG, however, under the partnership, DREAM aims to bring their actual events to America, and Pro-Elite will put on shows in Japan. You can finally wear their red Speedos to a stateside MMA event and be around people who understand him.

A press release regarding the details of the partnership is expected this week, but in the meantime check out this trailer for ProElite 3 made by Cynthia Vance. Be sure to follow her on Twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/cynthiavance)and let her know you discovered her from MiddleEasy.com. Let the power of the Red Monster be known in the social media interwebs! ProElite 3 goes down this Saturday on HDNet, that is if the world doesn't end.
