Rizin Fighting Federation founded in 2015 by Nobuyuki Sakikibara. Former promoter of the year in 2003 and 2004 as the Pride Promoter. Rizin since 2015 has continued to grow with the Bellator partnership, Signing fighters like Kyoji Horiguchi to represent Rizin!! Rizin isn’t going anywhere and signing the “Right” Fighters can build their brand!!
Blagoy was the former WSOF Heavyweight Champion, #11 Heavyweight for UFC. No disrespect to Blagoy but I don’t see Blagoy winning the UFC Heavyweight Title anytime soon but doesn’t mean he isn’t a world class heavyweight. Love seeing MMA fighters take advantage of free agency and Blagoy be perfect for Rizin.
