Two Rizin cards coming up soon in July and August. I look forward to ordering both of them.

Yusuke Yachi, Hatsu Hioki, Kaitlin Young will be among those competing at Rizin 12 on Aug. 12.

RIZIN announced several matchups for the card during a recent press conference. Rizin 12 takes place in Nagoya, Japan and is headlined by a lightweight showdown between Yachi and Bruno Carvalho

KRAZY BEE’s Yusuke Yachi (20-6) heads into Nagoya on the heels of six-straight phenomenal wins – five of those taking place inside a RIZIN ring. After losing to BJJ-Ace Kleber Koike Erbst at Pancrase 280 in late 2016, Yachi signed with RIZIN Fighting Federation. Debuting on New Year’s Eve that same year.

He starched Manny Pacquiao doppelganger Mario Sismundo within seconds. Yachi fought three times in 2017, finishing three big names in the form of Daron Cruickshank, Satoru Kitaoka, and PRIDE legend Takanori Gomi. He went to a decision for the first time in two years when he had an absolute war against Diego Nunes at RIZIN 10 in May.

Opposite the 28-year-old slugger stands Bruno Carvalho (10-5) of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Despite recently turning 36-years-old, Carvalho has not fought since October of 2016. He defeated Diego Farnezi for the vacant JF Fight lightweight title at JF Fight 17.

Prior to this, he hadn’t fought since well over two years earlier. Losing to Lucio Hantaru at Shooto Brasil 48 in June 2014.

There are also two all-Japanese featherweight fights on the card with Hatsu Hioki (29-11-2) facing Mikura Asukara (6-1-0-1) and Reina Miura (9-1) taking on Kaitlin Young (7-9-1). Meanwhile, welterweight Kiichi Kunimoto (19-7-2) faces off against compatriot Ryuichiro Sumimura (13-6) and heavyweight Roque Martinez (11-3) faces off against  "Samurai Mark Hunt" Kiyoshi Kuwabara (10-10).

I will say this with people like kyoji horiguchi, rena Kubota, kanna asakura, tenshin nasukawa, yusuke yachi each have the potential to be huge stars and if rizin can get the next fedor, mirko, Antonio, wanderlei, Quinton, igor etc they would be set. Of course they don't have to be from the countries these men come from after all the next fedor could be from my country the likely hood is low though

Definitely, quality over quantity is better right now for MMA. UFC is proving that.

One of great things about Pride was their foucus on HWs and LHs. I would like if Rizin had more HW and LH fights.

I would like to see the same with the LHWs and HWs.  Seems like we all pretty much agree on that.  Those are the best divisions for finishes and in my opinion, the best divisions period. There was talk of a HW GP so we'll see.

Heavyweights and Light Heavyweights are great but the problem is that it's easier to get top Japanese fighters in the smaller classes. The big thing is that PRIDE had great divisions cause they were the biggest promotion so they likely got first dibs while RIZIN isn't the same position as PRIDE, at least not yet. Even UFC's Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight divisions aren't rich as they're in a transitional phase with aging fighters and younger fighters trying to take that next step.

Rizin should sign talented HW and LHW fighters from east europe. Exciting kickboxers and sambo athletes in the bigger divisions from, for an example, Russia, Croatia, Ukraine and Poland will take Rizin to the next level. They need a new Fedor, Cro Cop and Vovchanchyn.

I totally agree. There is a lot of talent out there for them to scout.

There certainly is and there are a lot of talented Eastern European fighters but they should also look world wide it would certainly grow the promotion

They certainly are sounds of things they will crown champions when they get a deeper roster of I would love if they use the pride style division with the added lighter and women's division though I suspect they will use the regular division that is in all of mma.

I hope they start crowning champs soon with their GPs. Nice to have a tournament to decide an inaugural champion.
