Looking like a solid event, should be fun.
Who's the fighter on the bottom left (the small pics)?
You mean Tenshin?
No, I'm asking about the first guy left to right from the small pics below Horiguchi.
Really sick card. Looking forward to it!
Ben Nguyen, he just got cut from the UFC. He is facing Horiguchi.
I know who Ben Nguyen is, but I wasn't able to recognize him from that little picture.
So Tenshin, Shinju Auclair and Motoya are the only fighters on the poster not booked yet.
Tenshin and Motoya are going to be dependent on if they win their upcoming fights and come away unscathed. They have pulled it off before but this double booking did bite them with Tenshin before
"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight], if that's okay with him. He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN. I'm proud of Tank. He is going to stay active. So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight," Mayweather said.
The sad thing, this is a way more interesting bout than what expect Rizin to put together for Tenshin. Outside of Horiguchi, there haven't been many interesting matchups. I think Tenshin is taking too many fights close together. He is too ambitious this early in this career.
Looks like we are still living in that weird multiverse where Floyd vs McGregor happened, Floyd fought in Rizin and Randy Couture was on pornhub.
Wow... Tenshin vs Davis better be kickboxing or MMA.
Horiguchi training with Jussier Formiga and John Lineker for Ben 10 match.
It would be an amazing surprise if it was, especially since Davis has mentioned fighting MMA before. Sadly, I doubt it will be anything other than boxing since it's an "exhibition".
According to this article: https://efight.jp/news-20190211_320954
Sakakibara wants to put three ladies fights on the card. JuJu is the most likely candidate since she’s on the poster (although, everyone who’s followed long enough know that doesn’t mean much. Also mentioned that many likely candidates are in the Deep Jewels care in March, so those results will likely affect matchmaking,
It last went into talking about REnA and her going to the hospital over her weight cut last time. Talked about making adjustments, although I’m not sure from the translation if it’s talking about RENA making weight cut adjustments, moving up in weight, or changing the weight class itself. Knowing JMMA, they’re all equally possible.
I hope so.
