Concluding the 2nd Round theres the 4 finalist of the Bantamweight Grand Prix. Their Semi Finalist fights aren't part of our picks because they were picked for the 1st Rizin event yesterday.

But in case you're curious the final 4 fighters to wrap up this BW Grand Prix are;

Kyoji Horiguchi vs Manel Kape
Takafumi Otsuka vs Shintaro Ishiwateri

This should be pretty good. I think I'm gonna ride with Guchi Mane vs Ishiwateri for the final 2.


Also Gabi's fight was cancelled due to her coming in extremely heavy.

Made sure I took a long nap today to be ready for this one

This should be an excellent way to close out the year for MMA. Year end Japanese cards never disappoint.

That was one of the most fun cards this year. Almost every fight ended in a finish and everybody came to fight, even Gomi
I do wonder where Horiguchi goes from here, though. He won the batamweight GP so does Rizin do a flyweight GP? Maybe they do a featherweight GP and Horiguchi joins that? Just seems like their really isn't any competition for Horiguchi at the moment.
