I'd much rather see RIZIN take one of the Grachan champions and give him one of last year's Shooto rookie kings, see who comes out on top. Why isn't Matsumoto getting a quick turnaround against an overmatched Korean on this card? Or that one ZST champion that just (Kashiwazaki?) lost be given to Otsuka or Ishiwatari. There's not gonna be another Tokoro unless a Japanese organization goes all-in with ZST like HERO's did. Tokoro's too old to be Tokoro, they need a new Tokoro to take 'em to that next level. Kyoji's only a part of the puzzle. I acknowledge the irony in saying something positive about HERO's while denigrating kickboxing, by the way. But still, instead of all those great ideas, it's J-pop kickboxing with guys with one-word names for a third of the card... Also, Hioki's fighting, awesome. He might wanna re-evaluate things if he loses, though.
