    Casual warm up fight

    I am not sure how I feel that Tenshin has decided to stick with kickboxing instead of doing mma.
    I really doubt kickboxing can come back to mainstream in Japan.

    K1 does the best ratings off all combat sports on abema and they sell out bigger venues every time.


    Tenshin also got his way and Sakakibara confirmed they're doing a kickboxing gp in RIZIN starting in september with Tenshin, Horiguchi and Taiga.

    TenshinVSHoriguchi will be like MasatoVSKawajiri-lite...minus media circus and $$$.

    I am not sure what is the benefits of having one of their top rising stars getting brutally knocked out.

    This is a battle between two last hope of Japan Fighting circuit, not a guy fighting for his last two paychecks vs a second best JMMA LW fighter.

    Agree. Two top marketable local male fighters are better than one.

    No point stopping either of their hype trains. Should keep them as far apart as possible.

    Good example is Masato. Outside of KID, losing to him never did a thing for anyone (see JZ, Kawajiri etc). There's a good reason why they never made him fight MMA either.
