    Easy win for Roque, Hatsu needs a win bad. Running out of people for Yachi? BC hasn't fought in 2 years and is a can crusher, Japan loves facing their guys against Brazilians though.

    Sumimura is on a good streak winning the DEEP GP knocking out Ken Hasegawa in the finals but Kunimoto is a tough guy...Not bad so far

    Kanako Murata and Yuki Motoya are both confirmed too. I would definitely expect Kai Asakura as well, it's his hometown area and his brother Mikuru is already on it. There will be kickboxing/Shoot Boxing bouts

    The Asakura brothers are dope. Would love to see a rematch between Kai and Jea Hoon Moon sometime. Their first fight was fireworks.

    Also, out of all of the curlers of Team Kim, why that one? The captain was by far the cutest.

    Zero great matchups. They need to get motoya a real opponent.

    King Reina keeps saying she wants to go abroad and faces the best at 145 pound division.
    Her level of competition says otherwise...

    Can't wait for the 2 Rizin events coming up soon in July and August. Plus, a third one in September.

    It's her second fight in that division and it's definitely a big jump in competition from the first one though.

    I'm guessing she was probably meant to be Murata's opponent. 4-0 KOTC Strawweight champ with wins over Robb and Karagianis, had some good ammy wins as well. She's also a training partner of Gadelha, would have been a good addition regardless of who she fought.

    Hope they find a suitable replacement
    Murata is great to watch and a top prospect, needs seasoning against commensurate talent

    Emi Fujino has a fight already, but I'd like to see Murata fight someone like that. Someone with ace takedown defense, but isn't too dangerous of a kickboxer.

    And just like that, Rizin jumped the shark.

    Nah, haven’t used “jumped the shark” yet. Mayan, though? Feels like it might as well be a predetermined result.
