Rizin Bantamweight Semi-Finals start at Rizin 33, Main Event fight with Roberto De Souza and Koji Takeda. Definitely a sneaky card to watch on FITETV with some talented fighters who can compete in the UFC.
Favorite to win the Rizin Bantamweight Grand Prix. One of the best Japanese fighters right now.
Reminds me of tall Bantamweights like Cory Sandhagen and Nathaniel Wood.
Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion before losing to Kyoji Horiguchi.
Wins this fight against Kenta Takizawa will compete in the Rizin Bantamweight final.
Every hardcore fan aware of who Kai Asakura is and definitely can compete in the UFC or Bellator right now. The amount of dream matchups he can have.
28 years old time to make the move to a TOP 3 MMA Promotion in 2022.
Released UFC fighter can make a name for himself fighting for Rizin. Competing in the finals and beating the favorite Kai Asakura would be a massive victory for Inoue.
He’s only 24 years old, Don’t start hitting your prime till 26 years old. These two years can be huge for Inoue by winning a Grand Prix and defeating respected Bantamweights.
He trains at Long and Weidman MMA with CFFC Flyweight Champion Phumi Nkuta.
- 24 years old
- Six fight winning streak
Roberto De Souza
Current Rizin Lightweight Champion after shocking me in defeating Tofiq Musayev with a triangle choke in the first round.
12-1 record, High level BJJ Black belt winning BJJ Tournaments. 32 years old few more prime years out of him and earning good money with Rizin.
Koji Takeda is one straight savage, Japan Samurai. Entertaining fighter to watch. Japanese version of Justin Gaethje.
One of the best Lightweights from Japan and in Asia. Contender for the Rizin Lightweight Title.
Former Deep Lightweight Champion can be a Rizin Lightweight Champion.
Facing Noah Bey (Rise Welterweight Champion) 15-2 Kickboxing record is becoming a superstar. Now looking to become a successful MMA fighter.
Takeda vs Bey is going to be a straight war. If Takeda defeats Bey in a striking battle that be a significant win for Takeda.
- 12-2 record
- 26 years old
- Former Deep Lightweight Champion
