Satoshi Ishii vs. Pedro Rizzo in the Works
(bloodyelbow.com)
Satoshi Ishii was supposed to be the heavyweight star of Japanese MMA. At least that's what Japanese promoters were hoping when they threw him in with Fedor Emelianenko in only his seventh pro fight. Instead he got clocked and quickly; by a faded, but not entirely diminished, version of the greatest heavyweight of our era. And maybe, on this rare occasion, it was for the best. Since then, Ishii's matchmaking has been much more indicative of his level since then. With a slow and steady progression of name fighters who are well past their prime, but hold just enough relevance to give him a stable resume on his way to the big leagues. After losing to Fedor, Ishii has gone 3-0 with victories over Tim Sylvia, Sean McCorkle, and Kerry Schall, his most recent two coming via first round submission. Now a new opponent has been announced, and much like the last three it promises a lot of name value and very little danger. Tatame reports that Pedro Rizzo has told World Fight Radio that he will be fighting Ishii this May at an event in Japan yet to be named. Ishii's last three fights have all come under the IGF banner, and this one likely will too.
