Zuffa helping kickboxing to sabotage RIZIN

Post by Rizin=PRIDEFC on Fri Nov 06, 2015 6:59 am

Rizin FF on New Year's Eve has had the eyes of the MMA world since they first announced their event, being headlined by Fedor Emelianenko on New Year's Eve. While that is, indeed, a huge deal, what was announced today has a direct impact on the Japanese audiences by putting together one of the biggest fights that you could put together in Japan. That fight is KID Yamamoto vs. Masato in a 5 round kickboxing fight under the banner of KYOKUGEN on TBS.

One night only.

KID Yamamoto, who is currently under contract to Zuffa/UFC,will be allowed to participate in this event under some strange act of god, while Masato has agreed to return to the ring one last time against KID Yamamoto, whom he defeated in 2004 at Dynamite!! in a three-round kickboxing bout. Let's just hope there isn't a crazy low blow this time.

Yup, probably date crashing RIZIN with this. It shows they feel threatened enough that they have to go into RIZIN's hometown to support a Japanese kickboxing show.

This might be big for Japanese fans especially if Masato is coming back, regardless of the seriousness of the bout. Obvious counter programming since we all know Zoofa doesn't do sincere fighter sharing anymore.

Well it did beat Rizin. What can we take from this?

1.Zuffa fears Rizin, this only the third time I can think of that Zuffa has lent fighters (the last two times were both Liddel to Pride).

2.Rizin-NYE-2015/2016 still did decent #'s so since Kyokugen isn't really a combat sports promo but a variety show it will be hard for Zuffa to do this again.

3.Yamamoto may be a virtual nobody in the UFC but in Japan he is a ratings king. What happens when his Zuffa contract is up? Does Rizin make a dash for him? Does Zuffa try to pay him way more than what he is worth to then just to keep him from Rizin?
