Coker expects more cross promotion with RIZIN

Post by Kingfedor on Mon Dec 03, 2018 6:33 pm


Bellator MMA president Scott Coker is celebrating this week's cross-promotional announcement with Japan's Rizin Fighting Federation -- and expects there to be similar announcements in 2019.

Earlier this week, Bellator announced that its bantamweight champion, Darrion Caldwell (13-1), will face Rizin's Kyoji Horiguchi (25-2) for the promotion's inaugural 135-pound championship. The bout will take place on New Year's Eve in Saitama, Japan.

"We each had to make sure we were protected on the back side," Coker said. "If Darrion Caldwell wins the Rizin belt, at least once a year, we'll send 'DC' to Japan to defend that belt, because it's not fair to them to put their championship on the line and if he wins -- sorry, you don't have it anymore.

"Nobuyuki Sakakibara and I got on the same page. If Horiguchi comes here and wins, then he's a two-belt champion, and once a year Sakakibara will send Horiguchi to Bellator to defend that belt against the next title contender. That was important to both of us."

As soon as next year, Coker says, fans might see an entire "Bellator vs. Rizin"-themed fight card.
"I do think Rizin and Bellator will work multiple times together next year," Coker said. "I think it could lead to a big event where it would be 'Rizin vs. Bellator' in Japan or over here, next year. I think you'll see that type of collaboration."

mma gods make it happen and interesting we might see rizin fighters challenging for the bellator belt too.

Though once a year i rather see 4x per year. I know fat chance but still.

This is excellent news. Best MMA news in a while. Yeah, that is cool that Bellator belts will be on the line against RIZIN fighters.

That was a good article at the BJ Penn site.

That is a good way to draw it up. I really hope we get to see a good participant from Bellator in the RIZIN LW GP. Yeah, the RIZIN vs. Bellator mega events should be saved for NYE, I agree.

This might seem silly my opinion when it comes to the GP i would do it where the winner wins both the rizin and bellator gp whether the tournament was held in the rizin ring or bellator cage .

What do you fellas think of this? You know sites like these should be called ufc fighting with sometimes bellator and rizin and which other organisation thrown in.

It says the ufc is the biggest by a wide margin but my question is that because it is or is it because the ufc is the most talked about? "

Really good article by ESPN. I hope we see UFC participate one day in the future. They will be on ESPN soon.

That's a good idea. Either that or the winner fights the current champion for both belts.

I always wanted to see the day when UFC cross-promotes with someone.

Be a higher chance of winning the lotto than that happening. 

Besides we all know what happened the last time they did that.

Yes there is a difference between say the ufc and local show but both ufc bellator rizin one etc fighters are at a high level and anyone could win on the night .

On the ufc can you believe it some people are calling Max the greatest featherweight ever the goat feather weight is the man who before McGregor was 25-1 defended the belt wec and ufc 9x in total. In that case why aren't they calling Chris weidman the middle weight goat he beat Anderson twice.

They fear losing. That is the main reason they don't cross-promote, I agree. Who knows though, maybe one day they could throw a middle ranked fighter in a RIZIN GP or something along these lines. In return they could get someone like Jiri to fight a fight in the UFC against anyone.
