Some positive news for Rizin/Japanese MMA

Post by Kinosis on Mon Apr 04, 2016 12:45 pm

Some good news has come out regarding combat sports in Japan in general, and probably RIZIN in particular.

Similar to K-1's weekly program on TV Tokyo ("New K-1 Legend"), another one of the major TV networks in Japan, Fuji TV, will start airing a weekly half hour combat sports program starting on April 15th called "Fujiyama Fight Club" (Mount Fuji Fight Club).

Fujiyama Fight Club aired a few times leading up to the 2015 New Year's Eve events as well, but will now be on every friday night/saturday morning.

One of the hosts of the program will be RIZIN's Nobuhiko Takada.‚Äč

One rumor says that the next two RIZIN events are "build-up" events for a GP starting in September and ending on NYE. The GP will probably be -100 kg or open-weight. So the Aukstuolis vs. Singh, etc. fights are probably "preliminaries" for the GP.

Wanderlei Silva just confirmed on the MMA hour that there is a tournament in Sept in Rizin and he will be a part of it. Make it an 8 man tournament with Wanderlei Silva, Fedor, perhaps King Mo. That would be great.

Wanderlei also just said the him vs Fedor will happen after he has a couple of fights, said it would be soon and he will have an MMA fight in June or July.

This GP sounds real interesting. Hope they get King Mo in there again. It sounds like an 8 man tournament with final two fights on NYE and Wand is in for sure.

^Yup, I'm excited. I'd love an open weight GP with Wanderlei, Fedor, King Mo, Kharitonov + whoever wins some of these qualifying matches like Aukstuolis vs. Singh.

Other fighters could include Kongo, Baruto, Matt Mitrione, Bobby Lashley, Ishii. If done right, this could be the start to an epic last half of 2016.

Ok so two events that will set up a Grand Prix in Sept? The first one I guess was Rizin 1 and than there is another between now and September, the one in September itself, and than NYE.

Is that accurate?

No, the next event is planned in September to start the OW GP.

And than the OWGP concludes in at NYE or is there another event between NYE and Sep? Also the EFN card Fedor is on, is that a Rizin co-promo or is it just EFN?

Sept is the start of the 8 man tourney. It ends in Dec. The EFN card with Fedor is a co-promotion.
