Join us for Rizin’s event in Fukuoka that will be headlined by two former UFC title challengers.
Rizin’s 10th event happens in Fukuoka, Japan, and it will be headlined by two former UFC flyweight title challengers in Kyoji Horiguchi and Ian McCall.
Horiguchi went 7-1 in the UFC with his only loss being to top pound-for-pound fighter in Demetrious Johnson. During his free agency, he left the UFC as a top ranked flyweight contender, and continued his tear in Rizin. This is when he moved up in weight and won the promotion’s Bantamweight Grand Prix to extended his win streak to eight fights.
McCall also left the UFC on his own terms, but his string of bad luck continued when he lost via doctor stoppage after he got cut by the ring rope on his Rizin debut. He still gets a shot at the top dog tonight, in what should be an entertaining scrap between former UFC title contenders.
Also on the card is brutal kickboxing phenom Tenshin Nasukawa, and other talented names such as Yusuke Yachi, Diego Nunes, Manel Kape, and Daron Cruickshank.
The event will have an online PPV stream here, that will start at 1:30 a.m. ET.
