The final event of 2019 is here, and per usual it’s being held by RIZIN Fighting Federation!
Tonight, the Saitama Super Arena will be the site of a stacked RIZIN 20 fight card featuring three title fights, a kickboxing superfight, the conclusion of a star-studded Lightweight Grand-Prix featuring Patricky Freire (22-8), Luiz Gustavo (10-1), Johnny Case (27-6-1), and Tofiq Musaev (16-3), and so much more.
In the main event, it’s a vacant bantamweight title fight as Kai Asakura (14-1) faces Manel Kape (14-4) in a rematch from a 2017 contest in which Asakura won by way of decision. Ayaka Hamasaki (19-2) aims to defend her super atomweight championship when she faces ROAD FC champ Seo Hee Ham (22-8) for the third time, and RIZIN’s light heavyweight king Jiri Prochazka (25-3-1) defends his crown against UFC vet C.B. Dollaway (17-9) of Ohio.
21-year-old superstar Tenshin Nasukawa (35-0) gets quite possibly his toughest test to date when he faces KING OF KNOCK OUT champion Rui Ebata (41-2-3) in a pivotal kickboxing superfight. Elsewhere on the card, some RIZIN vs. Bellator fights in the form of Mikuru Asakura (11-1) vs. John Texeira (23-4-2), Yuki Motoya (23-7) vs. Patrick Mix (12-0), and RENA (9-3) vs. Lindsey VanZandt (7-2).
The card has even more to offer somehow as it also features the likes of Satoshi Ishii (22-10-1), Jake Heun (14-9), Shintaro Ishiwatari (26-7-4), Hiromasa Ogikubo (19-4-2), and more. Check out the full card below, as it will be updated with the RIZIN 20 results in real-time as the event progresses.
