Bantamweight King Of Pancrase Shintaro Ishiwatari has been announced as the latest participant in the RIZIN Bantamweight Grand-Prix.
 
Ishiwatari (22-6-4) has won four-straight, and in his most recent outing two months ago he decisively beat Rafael Silva to defend his bantamweight title.

Part of his current four-fight run includes a TKO win against Takafumi Otsuka, who advanced to the Grand-Prix Quarter-Finals. In 2013, Ishiwatari had a five round battle with Kyoji Horiguchi before he was eventually stopped in the fifth and final round.
He has long been considered one of the best fighters in Japan, and now he has the chance to further prove that when he joins the RIZIN Bantamweight Bw Grand-Prix.

Also, UFC Hall of Fame members Dan Henderson and Kazushi Sakuraba will meet in a special rules grappling bout at the fight promotion’s Oct. 15 event in Fukuoka, Japan.

Both Henderson and Sakuraba have retired from mixed martial arts competition, but are still active in the gym and on the mat.

Will be interested to see who they line up Ishiwatari against.  It's cool they got both DEEP and Pancrase champs in the tournament. Plus, Kyoji.

MW and LHW GPs would be great to see. Champs are definitely due, especially in HW and BW divisions where the GPs have been held.

Rena is back to action in the Rizin Woman's Atomweight GP  against Andy Nguyen.

RIZIN FF announced details the opponent for this GP’s favorite RENA (4-0). RENA has been a standout fighter in her original background Shoot Boxing, and has raked up an impressive 35-5 record, and hasn’t been defeated since she came short I a decision loss against Jessica Penne in 2011. The Shoot Boxing ace made her MMA debut on RIZIN’s first evet which was held on NYE of 2015, and shocked the world with a flying arm bar finish. She has since fought 3 times, finishing all opponents in spectacular fashion. She looks to staple herself as the Queen of combat sports, by winning this tournament in dominant fashion.

Nguyen (5-3), the current King of the Cage Atom weight Champion will be making her second appearance in the RIZIN ring after a fabulous performance in her promotional debut. The KOTC Champion submitted a wrestling world champion Miyuu Yamamoto (1-2) with an extremely crafty straight arm bar which earned herself a spot RIZIN’s first ever woman’s world GP. Nguyen is currently o a 3 fight winning streak, and is set to defend her title this weekend. Regardless of the results, Nguyen will take part in RIZIN’s GP facing RENA in the opening round.

Good opening round fight for the GP; Rena vs. KOTC champ.

I really like the fact that I'm only gonna have to wait a couple months to see another Rizin event,also like the addition of Ishiwatari to the BWGP and am looking forward to seeing Taha again as well,they have got to have some really serious fights for the heavier weight classes though on this card and should really try to have Minakov since he is just out there it doesn't make sense to not pick him up with Amir being so dominant he is gonna need a challenging opponent not someone the likes of King,I've heard that Aleksander is coming back to competition so why not have him in Rizin,they have to jump at these opportunities especially when trying to get legit HW'S but other than that the BWGP has been super entertaining so far and I even liked the Reina fight and hopefully for this event it gets posted online or there is a internet ppv so people can watch live.

I plan to buy all the Rizin events at that price. Minakov/Amir would be great to see.

Rizin seems to be undergoing steady growth, building up stars one fight and one event at a time.

I know, I like what they are doing as well. They definitely are building up their own cast of fighters I'm interested in, as well as bringing in fighters from other orgs.
