RIZIN always seems to do things differently. Instead of loading up a single megashow, they’ve split things up to have a very solid card this week and another one next week. Under their LANDMARK banner, we have a lot to look forward to.
The most notable thing about this event is the action-first matchmaking on display. Some of these may not be fighters fans will be too familiar with, but that’s what this preview is for. To get everyone up to speed. No kickboxing bouts will be taking place on this one, either. It’s all MMA.
