First fight for Delija after 3 years and that nasty leg break against Tybura.

This is great news.  Hard to beat a HW GP in Japan!

I love it rizin is building a roster though as much as I love a heavyweight gp I would prefer if they did a 185 205lb gp this year. As with most I hope rizin establishes Divisions I still think they should use something similar to pride (hw, mw, ww, lw, bw, fw) (fw, bw, fw, sw,aw) that's just me.

Heavyweight is the marquee division in combat sports (well except wrestling maybe, heavyweight wrestling is often pretty boring). So I think this is great.

The big Japanese orgs are also historically great at scouting and bringing in fresh talent. This conflicts with the Bellator way of using washed up fighters for their name value. The Japanese orgs are able to introduce fighters and provide their story, leading into the fights, and this creates interest. Will Brooks is a random example of this, I was there live for his dream debut when he took on Satoru Kitaoka, and showed his talent to the world. Perhaps its because they have people who understand the intricacies of martial arts making matches and scouting talent. Thus, I expect they will have good fighters on hand.
