Rumor: Rizin interested in Igor Vovchanchyn

Post by Kingfedor on Wed Aug 31, 2016 5:51 pm


After 11-year absence from the sport, RIZIN Fighting Federation is reportedly 'interested' in MMA legend Igor Vovchanchyn (59-10, 1NC)

Vovchanchyn is most known for his 37-fight unbeaten streak in the span of 4 years ('96-'00), as well as his KO power, with 41 of his wins coming by way of KO, 10 SUB.

Awesome. I love the older guys coming back, but I think they should be fighting other old guys for the most part. Perhaps if they are doing really well, throw a contender at them but legend matches are better for them.

Imagine fights like Wanderlei Silva vs Igor? Basically make a 40 and up division. Call it a legends match or the Legends division.

You won't believe me that yesterday I almost opened a thread asking does anybody know what is Vovchanchyn doing in 2016.  

btw Heath Herring not so long ago was mentioning possible comeback to fighting.

btw Bob Sapp told he is going to be good like in old days and he even posted video training in AKA.

If Igor is in great shape I wouldn´t mind seeing him against a low tier opponent. An exhibition fight would be best.

Kosaka would be reasonable. I thought I read that Igor vs Wand fell through for Pride 34, I hope they give Igor a warm up first if they are going to do that.
