Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Despite reports DREAM mixed martial arts was no more, officials for the Japan-based promotion will hold a press conference this Thursday (Oct., 26, 2012) to announce their annual New Year's Eve extravaganza.

Apparently, the "DREAM" is still alive.

A few weeks back, it was reported the Japan-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, DREAM, had shut down operations after parent company, Real Entertainment, had closed up shop.

Now, Asian MMA (via MMA Fighting) , the same outlet that reported the initial report, has confirmed the promotion is indeed alive and well and is set to kick off its annual New Year's Eve event which will go down at the famed Saitama Super Arena on Dec. 31, 2012.

A press conference to announce the event dubbed "GSI Presents DREAM 18 - Special NYE 2012," as well as potential match-ups, is scheduled for this Thursday (Oct., 26, 2012), which will enjoy the presence of Japanese fighters Tatsuya Kawajiri, Satoru Kitaoka and Hiroyuki Takaya.

Come fight night, it will have been a full year since the promotion has held an event after a few canceled shows, giving the MMA-starved Japanese faithful something to look forward to in "The Land of The Rising Sun."

To add a little more flavor, it was also revealed kickboxing promotion, GLORY, has partnered up with DREAM for the year-end show.
