    How is their situation right now?
    I remember in the NYE 2020 before the pandemic, it was really sad, they put a great show with RIZIN 20 and still couldn't get good results

    Remember to get a deep sleep the night before everyone.

    even if they deliver Tenshin vs Tokeru on NYE its still won't be good enough for me

    Hard to believe that Rizin started with a real bang around 2015 and now that we are apporaching RIZIN 2022 they are still talking about lower weight class GPs..kickboxers and boring youtube celebrities as their biggest attractions

    I will watch/buy but they need to seriously improve on last year

    I still want to see Gomi vs Shinya Aoki or Shinya vs Sexyama.

    NYE events are always so much fun! Rizin has been hit or miss, but I am gonna be cautiously excited for this card.

    They don’t care about weeaboo viewers with weird jmma fantasies of yesteryear. They’re too busy trying to make money from Japanese fans

    Rizin will literally never have a huge fanbase in the West, the time change is just too much and you will never get a huge amount of people who are clamorring to stay up all night for a non-UFC event.

    Shinya Aoki has been screaming at One FC on twitter lately for not offering him fights, so I hope he splits and comes home

    ONE and not offering fights, name a better combo. Literally the only promotion that I constantly hear this about

    They really need to change up the English commentary, everytime I've convinced people to watch it with me they either complain about how unenthusiastic they are or to just mute it

    I think it's money. The cards are full of Thai fighters local to the area. That's my theory. Bibiano and Aoki are probably 2 of the higher paid guys on their roster. The Thai guys are used to fighting for pennies and probably are getting more but it's still way less then their top MMA guys get.

    Rizin makes money from Japanese fans not non-Japanese fans. Just be happy that some of their promos have English sub haha.
