    Other than one or two articles immediately before/after the NYE event, western mma media doesn’t care about RIZIN. Doesn’t bring enough clicks. No clicks, no money.

    if you told me 500 people purchased the PPV and watched it the night of, I would be shocked. Rizin doesn’t have a following outside of Japan. That said, I did see Meltzer had a story about the scandal in his observer. It’s just hard to follow for non-Japanese speakers.

    The JMMA scene is so disconnected from the Western (UFC) centric audience. Same thing with Russian MMA scene but not as much as with JMMA

    What a horrible look lol. Sometimes I wonder if I should be a MMA fan or just follow more established sports like basketball
