ONE FC Scraps Plans For December Event, Next Show In February
(mmafighting.com)
ONE FC's next event will be in February, not December. According to a ONE FC official, the promotion has scrapped a planned December event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, due to "lack of venue options and availability." The same official said the decision was not a financial one. As a result, the Singapore-based promotion is now planning a "big event" in February, and they are expected to hold a press conference in early December to announce more details. The promotion was planning on kicking off a flyweight tournament in December. ONE FC has held six events in its short history and five of those cards happened in 2012.

Josh Barnett's Manager Says Fighter Not Defending King Of Pancrase Title In 2013
(fightline.com)
Leland LaBarre, the manager for Josh Barnett, denied a report that Barnett would defend his King of Pancrase title in 2013. A report circulated on Thursday that Barnett had told the promotion he would fight for them next year. It's not true," said LaBarre, in an interview with Sherdog.com. "I guess (Pancrase) talked to Josh while (Josh) was (in Japan), and they said they would love to have him back, but there was nothing (to it)." LaBarre said that Barnett is focused on his next Strikeforce bout and that he is "totally back" from suffering a broken hand in a loss to Daniel Cormier. Barnett won the Pancrase open weight title in 2003. It is unknown if "The Warmaster" will follow other Strikeforce heavyweights into the UFC, but his manager seems to think so. "If Zuffa wants Josh Barnett to fight in their UFC Octagon after Josh's last Strikeforce fight," LaBarre said, "I think that is where he'll be."

Josh Barnett to defend Japanese title in 2013
(bloodyelbow.com)
Top 10 heavyweight Josh Barnett will return to Pancrase next year to defend his openweight King of Pancrase title. The Warmaster, according to yahoo.co.jp, had a meeting with Pancrase CEO Masakazu Sakai after Barnett’s recent professional wrestling match with Shinichi Suzukawa at Inoki Genome Federation. The meeting seems to have been fruitful. Barnett has agreed to defend his KOP title next year during the Pancrase 20th Anniversary Tour, against any opponent Sakai wants to put in front him. Barnett stated that he is a part of the Pancrase family and wants the legendary organization and its fighters to reach new heights of popularity.

MFC's Mark Pavelich says he couldn't promote women's MMA
( mmajunkie.com)
Canada's Maximum Fighting Championship has been in operation for 13 years, which is a great source of pride for promoter Mark Pavelich. Part of that staying power, he said, is rooted in putting out a consistent product. In a time when the sport's biggest promotion is flirting with women's MMA and headliners of questionable importance, Pavelich said he's sticking to what he knows. When it comes to women's MMA, that means staying out of the game.

(mmajunkie.com)
The NBC Sports Network-televised portion of World Series of Fighting's debut event is now complete. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the promotion that a light-heavyweight contest between Anthony Johnson (13-4) and D.J. Linderman (14-3) is the sixth and final contest planned for the broadcast. The event takes place Nov. 3 at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. An 11-time UFC veteran, Johnson fights for the third time as a light heavyweight. The 6-foot-2 "Rumble" competed mostly as a welterweight during his time in the octagon but has since elected to compete at 205 pounds, where he's racked up a pair of knockout wins over Jake Rosholt and Esteves Jones in regional shows. He's 5-1 in his past six contests. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Linderman has been competing as a heavyweight in recent outings but will drop back down to 205 pounds for this contest. Currently 5-1 in his past six contests, Linderman has competed professionally since 2008 and has never lost a bout via stoppage. He currently stands as Cage Warriors Fighting Championship's heavyweight champion.
