Rizin press conference:Carwin join the Grand Prix

Post by Kingfedor on Tue Oct 25, 2016 10:38 pm


Former UFC interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin is making his return to mixed martial arts after a five-year absence.
The 41-year-old Coloradan has signed with the RIZIN Fighting Federation and will make his debut in the second round of the company's open weight World Grand Prix tournament in Saitama, Japan, on Dec. 29.
His opponent has yet to be determined.

I kind of wish Wand vs Cro Cop wasn't happening. I'd rather see all of the old, big name guys (Cro Cop, Wand, Carwin) fight the younger guys. It gives the chance to build big new big stars.

I agree!

I think Carwin vs Aliakbari will happen I don't think they will sacrifice Baruto

Extremely smart move by Rizin,I had a feeling this was gonna happen and made my opinion known on sherdog and received harsh back lash from the zombies saying such things as I'm seeing things through western lenses and that the Japanese don't care for big elite American hw and hell they don't even care for mma as a sport,the average Japanese doesn't care.

Looks like I'm gonna have to go back to my profile and search up those comments and send out replies to those ignoramous since they were so cocky and sure about their drivel,bunch of group thinkers in those forums.

I don't think the Rizin bosses wanted that fight, but I think it's actually ideal in some ways. It ensures that the fight happens; also, more importantly, they get to fight each other while both are 100%, not coming off another fight a couple days prior.

Lol, what a bunch of ignorant fools. The Japanese have a huge fetish for big guys. Look at sumo. Look at their comics and anime. Look at guys like Bob Sapp, Hongman Choi, Mighty Mo, Mark Hunt, Baruto, etc. etc.

And of course the Japanese see it as a sport, but they see it as an art first and don't care much about wins and losses and stuff like that.

Anyway, this is good shit with Carwin in the GP.

Great move putting Carwin in GP. A number of fights there I'd like to see. Imagine Carwin/Wand OW fight.
