It appears as if the former Grabaka Hitman is choosing retirement over a cloudy future in Strikeforce. Kazuo Misaki (25-11-2, 1 NC), the Pride 2006 welterweight grand prix winner, will take one more bout in Japan before he hangs them up for good according to

In the biggest news of the night, the legendary Kazuo Misaki announced that he will step away from MMA action and that his final fight will be at DEEP’s December 22 Haleo Impact event. Due to Misaki’s Strikeforce contract, the match may have to be a "special exhibition bout" and no opponent was named.

The fights Kazuo Misaki was in were consistently FOTN and sometimes FOTY. He didn't always win, but he almost always made it exciting.

One of the absolute toughest SOB's ever to lace up the boots(figuratively) and get in the cage/ring. Wins over some of the greatest all time, and losses to almost only good fighters. The sport will miss him.

Loved to watch Misaki fight. MMA needs more fighters like him that are willing to leave it all in the cage.

WAR MISAKI for all the EPIC fights

His fight with Macaco at an early PRIDE Bushido event was fucking incredible. 2004 FOTY candidate.
