Really fucking lame. Shame we couldn't get the Bader match but pickings were pretty barren after that unless he made the switch to Bellator.

Sucks and a blow to Rizin but I can't be surprised. He probably thought more fights, more challenges, and more money.

This place has died down quite a bit since I started posting.

It is a pity but lets be real Rizin doesn't have much of a light heavyweight division .

Shit seems like its worse to at least get some talent growing. Rizin alone with jiri is not enough same with ufc is full of east European talent and very thin division in ufc.

Overall its effecting all of mma.

I saw on Sherdog someone say Rizin is becoming a Japanese wec which is probably true.

Yup. Then again, DREAM pretty much was a Japanese WEC and even ONE doesn't have strong heavier weight classes.

and that isn't that bad of a thing. WEC was great and still a top 5 promotion at the end of its run. K-1 Japan is running a similar promotion and they're bringing in good crowds to larger arenas like Saitama, Yokohama, Edion Arena, and Ryogoku. Not bad for a promotion that cut their teeth at Yoyogi 2nd and the community arena of Saitama.

Prochazka had a limited shelf life in RIZIN unfortunately. He was always either going to end up in UFC or Bellator but I'm more worried about Tofiq Musyaev making the jump. There's still fights available for him theoretically, like Roberto Satoshi, superfights with Aoki, Bendo/Chandler, and possibly Mikuru Asakura

It's a pity man I would love for Rizin to build a solid heavyweight light heavyweight division . Jiri was talking about going to the UFC even before he signed to the UFC it's on YouTube. I will Link it when I can find the bastard.

They can make stars with lighter weight classes because Asians tend to be a bit smaller but don't Japanese audience's like freakshows with giant dudes?
