Mika “Future Princess” Nagano (14-9-0) said farewell to the sport she loves.

Having fought since 2007, Mika officially hanged her gloves up earlier today.

The 30-year-old was scheduled to step into to the ring for one last time, where she would face Saori Ishioka. But after announcing she was pregnant, Nagano was pulled from the contest.

Mika, who competed the Majority of her career under the JEWELS banner was known for her wrestling and technical submissions. Nagano went onto face some of Asia’s biggest names – Megumi Fujii, Celine Haga, Emi Fujino, Seo Hee Ham, Mei Yamaguchi and Emi Tomimatsu throughout her career.

Nagano ended her Mixed Martial Arts journey winning four out of her last five fights, dropping only one in a rematch to the aforementioned Emi Tomimatsu for a place in the DEEP Jewels Lightweight Tournament Final.

We here at Fight Sport Asia wish Mika Nagano good luck on her future endeavors.
