RIZIN Planning on Women’s GP in 2017

Post by Kingfedor on Mon Jan 02, 2017 4:09 pm


After the December 31st show at Saitama Super Arena, RIZIN FF head Nobuyuki Sakakibara shared the federation’s plan for year 2017.

“We have Japan’s top women that can compete against world’s top fighters so we are looking to expand women’s division in 2017.

“Right now, in a parallel to men’s grand prix, we are thinking about hosting women’s grand prix which will be the very first of its kind in the world. In fact, it would be the first time in the world to do both men’s and women’s grand prix at the same time. I would like to announce this by mid January.

“Women’s fights scored a very good TV rating on Fuji TV. Men can’t just sit around and do nothing now. Women might even replace men. If there are needs then we would have to put more women’s fights which will create more chance for the fighters.”
There were no mentioning of weight class or how many fighters in the grand prix.

No details at this point but basically what Sakakibara wanted to say was, women’s MMA is finally getting a recognition in the Japan’s general public.

Rizins ratings were good.  They were better than last year and they beat TBS this year (Masato vs. Gomi). In Croatia, over 1 million of 4 million population watched the event. Cro Cop in the GP was a big hit.

Count me out for a woman's GP but I am curious what men's fights they will be doing. I'm really excited for Kron Gracie's future, that guy is beating people in a way that the top 10 in the ufc at 145lbs can't do it. They need to get him in a tournament or fighting for a 145lbs belt.

Yeah im with kinosis nothing they've offered up female wise makes me think a womans GP is anything to get excited about.

Keep the men's GPs going perhapsa bushido tourney with fresh talent and definitely another HW tourney.

You can't go wrong with more RIZIN.

The women's grand prix should be epic.

I'd rather see men's GP. I only like select WMMA fights.

no it wont. They clearly have an agenda and pushing certain fighters. Gabbi will always be a one off fight.

They want RENA, Miyuu, Kanna, and Kanako all to win and win big. Only problem is they matchup them all against good competition except RENA. Notice Rizin never brings in girls from Korea or China.

RIZIN also stated Saori Yoshida would fight for them but then they switched that to Eri Tosaka but so far they kept her out of the ring.

It's a 105 lb tournament. No doubt setup for RENA to get to the finals. If they fill the tournament with cans Im done with RIZIN. I mean they cant keep thinking their fans are retarded.
