Why Top MMA News Says: ‘The Score Is No More’
(topmmanews.com)
This past week, Top MMA News broke the very unfortunate news that one of Canada’s top MMA promotions was closing their doors – The Score Fighting Series was ceasing operations. If you missed the news, you can read it HERE. As expected, the news spread rapidly and was met with dismay by the Canadian MMA community. Losing a show of this caliber negatively affects fans, fighters, venues, the promotion’s staff, gyms, the entire sport of MMA. Hell, losing a promotion that was a pipeline for great Canadian fighters in great Canadian markets even negatively impacts the UFC. Jesse Ronson and Josh Hill would not be on the UFC’s radar, if it was not for the Score putting on events. The following day, The Score issued a press release to refute the Top MMA News story. You can read it HERE. It basically said that The Score or the Trustee released some individuals, but no decision was made on Score Fighting Inc. Immediately, fans held their breath and crossed their fingers hoping it was true and web sites that copied our previous story, quickly removed their version and instead stated that the Score was alive and kicking because no decision had been made. Well, sadly, that is not true. The Score Fighting Series is no more.

Bellator fighter Paul Daley scheduled for fight in Ireland on February 23
(bloodyelbow.com)
After some trials and tribulations, it appears that Daley has finally been approved for a fight outside the Bellator umbrella. Bellator Welterweight Paul Daley was expected to fight on the promotion's Season 8 premier on Spike TV against War Machine next week. Those plans were tossed after a recent arrest prevented Daley from obtaining a visa to travel to the US. After initial struggles with Bellator in getting permission to fight outside their organization, it looks like Daley now has a fight scheduled. Daley will face Patrick Vallee at Cage Contenders 16 on February 23.

Knapp: "If you're truly a fan of mixed martial arts, you can't be gender biased"
(mmafighting.com)
"If you're truly a fan of mixed martial arts, you can't be gender biased," Invicta Fighting Championship president Shannon Knapp said in a recent telephone interview. "If MMA is about fighters competing in actual weight divisions and having competitive fights, that's what we have. If you don't like that, you're not a true fan of the sport. You can't be gender biased and be a true fan." "(The UFC is) only going with one division. We've got an entire roster of fighters in five weight classes. Even with the one division where we overlap, I mean, look at it like this: look where Liz was in her career a year ago. She lost to Coenen and Kaufman back-to-back. Then she came here, she looked good in winning her fights, and she started to assert herself and market herself. I'm not going to take the credit for it because it's all on Liz, but she had the opportunity here and she took it. That's the sort of thing we can still help with."

Glory World Series Expands Into the U.S. in 2013, Continued Plans to Revive Fight Scene in Japan
(mmaweekly.com)
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'
(sherdog.com)
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.
