Glory World Series Expands Into the U.S. in 2013, Continued Plans to Revive Fight Scene in Japan
The tradition of huge shows in Japan on New Year’s Eve goes back many years, but with the mixed martial arts and fight scene in general in the country failing over the last several months, many wondered if 2012 would be the first year no major show would close out 2013. Thanks to Glory World Series and a partnership with DREAM, the New Year’s Eve show was saved, and later tonight a double card featuring several MMA bouts as well as a 16-man heavyweight kickboxing tournament will cap off 2013 in Japan.

Kazuo Misaki goes out swinging, Kazuyuki Miyata dominates at DEEP 'Haleo Impact'
TOKYO -- After 12 years and nearly 40 fights, Japanese fan-favorite Kazuo Misaki said farewell to the ring Saturday in front of a packed Korakuen Hall at Deep “Haleo Impact.” In his final appearance, Misaki took on teammate and close friend Akihiro Gono in an exhibition kickboxing match. The bout began with shin-guards, but Misaki removed his before the second round and directed Gono to do the same. The two friends brawled for two rounds and embraced one another in tears after the final bell. “I fought 40 fights over 12 years. What I learned from all of that was two important things: the terms ‘thank you’ and ‘challenge,’” Misaki told the crowd before giving thanks to his teammates, family and fans, bowing out with tear-filled eyes. Misaki’s career saw him win the 2006 Pride Welterweight Grand Prix and includes notable wins over Dan Henderson, Denis Kang and most recently, Paul Daley.

Source Tachi Palace Fights to Shutter Doors in 2013
After 11 years of promoting mixed martial arts, the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino is likely out of the fight business. Sherdog.com confirmed the information with a source close to the situation, who verified that tribal council members have voted to discontinue Tachi Palace Fights during the council’s annual meeting to discuss the casino’s entertainment options in the coming year. As a result, TPF 16, which was scheduled to go down Feb. 21, will not take place. However, Sherdog’s source also stated that if the decision is disputed by the people of the tribe, the population’s opinion could sway the council to change its decision. Nevertheless, even if the tribe votes to challenge the council’s ruling, is unlikely the development would affect the cancellation of TPF 16, as the aforementioned process is not expected to come to a head until February or March, according to Sherdog’s source.

Score Fighting Series 7 results: Mein quickly stops Petz, Ronson batters Healy
Strikeforce took a gamble by loaning out Jordan Mein, one of its top welterweight prospects, for Friday's Score Fighting Series 7 headliner. Against UFC vet Forrest Petz, he faced a heavy-handed fighter with proven knockout power. Yet, quickly in the main-event fight, it looked like anything but a risky proposition. Mein made short work Petz and battered him with punches, elbows and knees from close quarters for a quick and efficient first-round TKO victory. The bout headlined SFS 7 and took place at Hamilton Place Theatre in Ontario, Canada. The main card aired live on AXS TV. Although Petz opened up early, Mein quickly pounced with countershots and put him on the defensive with accurate strikes. The stoppage, which primarily was the result of standing elbow strikes, came at the 1:29 mark of the opening round. "I had to respect his power ... but once I landed a few elbows, I felt good," said Mein, who isn't sure if he has an immediate future in the rumored-to-be-closing Strikeforce promotion. "I'm excited and happy." Mein (26-8) is now 8-1 over his past nine fights, and the lone defeat came via close split decision to Tyron Woodley. Petz (25-10), meanwhile, snaps a four-fight win streak.
