    Aorigele vs. Barnett in the finals would be something.. but it's unlikely, i think Mighty Mo wins the whole thing.

    Lol, y is Fujita in the fuckin alternate? Btw, I remember handong kong from ruff when he got his balls kicked, and when he got koed by zhilong zhao (I think that's his name) and surprisingly, he has a fight in pancrase also against shungo oyama. I believe he was the first Chinese fighter that fought in Pancrase.

    Why was Fujita an alternate and not in the tournament? Am I alone for wondering that? Crazy line up. Should be a freakshow and a half.

    Man, Shinji showed all the signs of a man that needs to step away from the sport in his last fight. We will see I guess..

    LeBanner is rumored to be pulling out (due to injury) his kickboxing match with Różalski.

    I hope Rozalski ends up replacing him in Korea if he indeed is injured

    Why? I’m ok with her being in this show. More so with the open weight concept

    If what's written on the internet about Futina is true (so far all we have are statements from her gym, I havent found any kind of independent records) she is a master of sports in Judo as well as a 4x World Combat Sambo Champion with sherdog listing her weight at 202lbs, making her by far the most competitive fight of Gabi's career, and probably as legitimate an opponent as you can find without RIZIN spending the really big bucks to get some heavyweight Olympians like Yu Song or Kanae Yamabe.

    I just cannot take her seriously. I just can't. Also, considering that Road has legit female MMA fighters on their roster, their passing up on booking them to joke a freak show like Gabi just takes away from their legitimacy.

    Also, it certainly lends credence to the attacks on Road by the president of TFC recently, who accused Road of caring more about putting names in their events, than having serious fights:

    Good to see Gabi get an interesting opponent. People might disagree with the signing but having a Women's Openweight division right now without Gabi is almost as pointless as a Featherweight division without Cyborg
