Fighting and Entertainment Group (FEG) is the leading Japanese combat sport promoter. Its current president is Sadaharu Tanikawa and it is the parent company behind the largest kickboxing promotion in the world, K-1, and the mixed martial arts series, Dream. On December 31, 2010 after the Dream event Dynamite!! 2010, Tanikawa announced a three-month hiatus for FEG, stating, "2011 is a comeback year for us. We will restructure the company for three months and start holding events in the spring."

In January of 2011, Sadaharu Tanikawa told a Japanese publication that "The current course is that FEG will die" leading to further speculation about the future of FEG. FEG USA's Mike Kogan added, "[U]nless the money comes now, meaning the investors that have been talking commit and we start to move forward, the company will die. There is no way for it to survive, we have exhausted all good will."
