We found out a name. Just not the one everyone was anticipating.

Former PRIDE boss Nobuyui Sakakibara introduced his brand new MMA promotion at a press conference in Tokyo on Thursday. But there was no announcement regarding the opponent for Fedor Emelianenko in the main event on New Year's Eve, though it was promised in a press release.

Pride rules,fights in a ring,openweight fights,a hw grand prix......

Rizin Fighting Federation will partner with 7 organisations in the US Bellator, In England BAMMA, in Poland KSW, in Lithuania BUSHIDO, in Brazil Jungle Fight, in Korea ROAD FC and in Jordan DESERT FORCE




This is what i been talking about orgs all working together and making mma interesting and offering up something different by going old school......I FUCKING LOVE IT.

Im hearing whispers that the reason fedors opponent wasn't announced is because they are in talks with someone else which is great.

I'd love for them to be pulling the wool over our eyes with the first announcement and come back with something sweet...shit Fedor vs Bedorf or Tybura would be awesome! I prefer the cage over the ring, but mostly in Asia they don't...either way I don't really care. If his opponent is crap then the only way I'm watching is if the card is good regardless of the main event.

sweet, I hope the taped delay isn't too far off the actual broadcast. Hopefully Fedor get's a more experienced MMA fighter.

Rampage recently wrote something saying he wants to fight for Rizin and that ufc said its ok,theyd let him fight and not go forward with legal Action and ket rampage settle up with bellator.

Also heard pudzilla might be his opponent


But best news im hearing is RIZIN FIGHT FEDERATION is currently in negotiations with FUJI TV !!!!!!

Sounds like a good start to build a card. Very international flavour, I hope the show has a kumite feel to it. ... ...

Just read that ariel helwani broke tge wrong news.....that in fact fedors opponent is definitely not singh.

It says news will be announced soon about fedors opponent.

I bet jaideep singh is just going to participate in the hw gp.Im interested to see who the other participants will be.3 events in 3 days im excited especially if sakakibara pulls off a fuji tv deal.
