LowKick MMA covering the latest Rizin news since 2015

The Rizin Fighting Federation is a Japanese mixed martial arts promotion created in 2015 by Nobuyuki Sakakibara the former president of Pride Fighting Championships.   From its inception LowKick MMA has brought you the latest news from the Tokyo based organisation. 

Pride began in 1997 and was the original competitor to the UFC. The organization would produce many starts who would continue to become UFC champions after Pride was acquired by the UFC’s parent company Zuffa in 2007.

After the formation of Rizin, they would go on to announce their first event to be headlined by former Pride heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.

Rizin chose a unique concept, instead of becoming another competitor in the MMA promotion space they sought to create a platform where all promotions and fighters can test their skills without losing their characteristics.

This saw Rizin host events for fighters belonging to major promotions within MMA with notable athletes such as Bellator‘s King Mo and One Championship Shinya Aoki both competing under the federation.

Rizin currently streams exclusively on digital on FITE TV in North America and Europe.

LowKickMMA provides coverage of all Rizin news in one place. Providing the latest Rizin news as well as exclusive content, it is our mission to ensure we provide entertaining informing content to our readers.
