    Number one bullshit saying what Wand would have done, especially considering Wand’s last Rizin appearance, combined with what Rampage had to go through to get a rematch at him after the ‘03 Grand Prix.

    That’s a shame, he’s a really great talent. This fighting once a year thing is killing any moment for him though. He and Neiman seem to be the Gracie’s that could go the farthest in MMA.

    Is Horiguchi vs Ogikubo kickboxing? Or did they revert back to MMA?

    MMA

    Horiguchi will probably start kickboxing in September if he wins

    Awesome. I prefer that to be honest.

    Looks like Rizin keeping Horiguchi busy for another year.

    a rematch from 2013. They're desperate for storylines.

    The reality is that there are not many top guys to challenge Horiguchi available

    Ogikubo is a pretty good choice to fight Horiguchi. While I expect Horiguchi to win soundly, I think he's probably the best option they could find.

    Ogikubo hasn't officially lost since that fight and was one win away from challenging for a UFC title less than 2 years ago. Horiguchi is going to fight like 6 times this year if he avoids injuries, this is a more than acceptable fight.

    Funny thing I noticed watching the RENA vs Rivera fight from New Year's Eve:

    They did a close up of the belt, and it said Super Atomweight Champion. The word "tournament" appeared nowhere.

    if true, that's pretty fucked up.

    and it kind of defeats the point of asking kanna, to begin with. now i kind of want to see kanna tell them to fuck off.

    this shit is why i despise seeing orgs try to make/sell stars instead of just being about fights. tenshin vs 45 straight cans and rena will get as many rematches/title shots as it takes for her to be the champ, i guess.

    god forbid the 'wrong' person wins and even already fought again...

    This is literally the best, most competitive fight for Horiguchi they can feasibly make right now, outside of Dodson, who was probably much harder to snag on relatively short notice (just over 8 wks)
