Everything you need to know about RIZIN FF 45.


Casual MMA fans think there's no more MMA until 2024, but the hardcore MMA fans know about RIZIN FF 45.

The yearly New Years Eve fight card is happening again this year in Japan.

American MMA fans will recognize a few familiar names, particularly in the main and co-main events. Kyohi Horiguchi and Makoto Takahashi face-off for the inaugural RIZIN flyweight championship after their Super Rizin 2: RIZIN X Bellator fight ended in an accidental eye poke just 30 seconds in.

The co-main features RIZIN bantamweight champion Juan Archuleta facing off with Kai Asakura for his first defense of the new title. The pair were also supposed to appear on the Super Rizin 2: RIZIN X Bellator but Asakura was forced to withdraw due to injury.
