Last July, Sengoku executives gathered in some hidden location, rubbed their hands together in a dimly light boardroom and came to the conclusion that the company will run Japanese MMA by slowly waiting for DREAM to self-destruct. They were going to harness the power of entropy to rule the world of MMA. That's incredibly deep and massive props to the person that convinced a room full of executives that entropy was the most logical option to expand a budding organization. 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.
SRC Report: Future activities of the emergency;
Emergency previous report (released February 1, 2011) As we know the history behind it, but we now are critical crossroads, we face a tough decision. Then, Don Quixote, who is also the parent company of our sponsor (the company below) from, SRC has been made official representations to the effect that withdrawing from the business.
It has also led to this, we express the truth intentionally, and if the company [million years despite large deficits, but only in a dream has continued to support and love of martial arts, but the thought Naka Naka Not only convey, ranging to be dragged into such a situation and some mindless media article on the contrary, is disgusted Hotohoto] you really like.
The company most, rather than a full withdrawal from the actual martial arts community, Pancrase and Shooto activities sponsored organizations that support current and amateur wrestling or are planning to continue, even and other groups, "If tapped Future (help) and not willing to consider, "I said. But we organized, SRC from big businesses such as Sengoku decision to pull out of the company is refusing to be changed.
Indeed shameful that the inside will pour out, as we have been doing business entirely dependent on sponsors and parent support is not without its own box office on its own can be terminated if it is no longer present and if Ikan stuck with a difficult situation I have to say.
The only hope is the emergence of a sponsor to replace Don Quixote. The company also "has a love for martial arts, if there is funding us to target certain (for inheritance) willing to cooperate fully" with the intention to accepting. Even if we do something in that direction, we hope to find out the possibility of 一縷. But if it is fulfilled, you must be prepared for the worst that can be dissolved.
Even with the lack of any company, SRC fans, players, of course, put a great deal of inconvenience and worry like all the related parties, lay down here and I apologize.
