Rizin - New Years Eve MMA (Mayweather vs. Nasukawa)

Recommended Posts

Could have kept this in the other MMA thread but New Years Eve Japanse MMA deserves it's own thread as it's such a tradition in MMA. I'll try keeping this thing updated as i read stuff and lead into the shows. Somehow i missed last years shows but im determined to go old school and view these ones! Shows air over here via the Fite TV app too, though it may cost you a few quid.

There are 2 shows like last year, one on the 29th and then one the 31st. Two tournaments will be held over the course of the two shows, an 8 man Bantamweight GP and a 4 female Atom Weight GP, expect a bunch of weird and wonderful matches mixed in amongst them. I'll try getting some bio's and stuff in for the competitors and other guys on the card to help drum up some interest (this being as much for me as anyone), anyways...

December 29th:

Main Card

Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Gabriel Oliveira (BWGP quarter-final)

Manel Kape vs. Ian McCall (BWGP quarter-final)

That's true, but he's never going to improve on this classic fight from Pride.
