    Where you at @tinobar, aren't you glad we have a good chance of seeing Kawajiri on the rest of this year's RIZIN events?

    @Asurah

    On the Sherdog article, Takada said that the reason Kawajiri is fighting for the spot for the BW GP is because Kawajiri post a picture of himself weigh in at 138 lbs to Takada in July. Takada like his determination.

    Yeah, that was in the press release. Kawajiri also said he's only making the cut because he wants to fight Horiguchi.

    I emailed somebody at FiteTV. They said it was a mistake with the countdown clock and they will fix it.

    If there are no freakshows on this card it would be hard to order it..cmon RIZIN

    Asakura is the only fighter that has any appeal for me right now, I have watched every RIZIN event live. If they drop the freak fights they will lose all their fans.

    Why can't we have a teenager girl tournament filled with Asakuras rather than with boring woman that have distasteful bleached hair and tattoos?

    Does Rizin understand what having a theme is ? "autuum people" is not a theme that matches the fights that have been booked. I would not mind a tournament filled with grannies who were stars of the 90s JMMA woman's scene that would be fitting with the "autuum people" thing

    but having just another tournament full of regular fighters without any central theme is pretty depressing

    Why can't they do do "spring tournament" full of 18 years old and "Autuum tournament" full of grannies ? Don't they understand what narrative and theme are?

    MMA without narrative and theme MMA is just human cockfighting and the public and also me in particular aren't really that interested in watching human cockfighting cause the best human cockfighting can be found elsewhere and anyway we are all pretty sick of this human cockfighting thing...it's not what got people initially into watching MMA..it was styles vs styles or it was a fight between two famous people..

    Good to see Kawajiri back, but at BW? He seemed solid even at WW back in the day. He is a good fighter, seems like he is losing muscle fast. I pick an L for him, especially being that he is older, and will not recover from the cut as readily. FW seemed good for him recently, maybe he is just trying to get into the tournament.

    You should watch Moat Fighting which is style vs style. Also go find SEIZA on Youtube because that has the kind of young girls you would enjoy.

    The best tournaments of all time weren't 1 night.

    You can pretend all the bouts leading up to the final four on 12/31 were just qualifiers for the tournament.

    What were the ticket sales looking like? I saw they sold out of the cheapest one a few weeks back.

    There is a presser coming up in 2 hours

    Still at least one more fight for the BW GP to be announced and likely a few more fights outside the GPs. I might be imagining things but I think I recall them saying to expect more than 10 bouts

    Yeah, I think he said 11-12 fights, but that includes the 3 kickboxing bouts they just announced. Also they just announced Tenshin vs a Japanese amateur boxer (dont know him, Fujita?) under MMA rules.
    I think they also announced a fight for the bantamweight GP but I missed that.
