Since few weeks we can find the new homepage of the Japanese Fighting Federation in WWW. Interesting is the concept they follow which is pretty different to other known fighting federations. Their goal is not to integrate all existing fight promotions all over the world. The Rizin FF crates a platform where each promotions and fighters can compete while they keep their divers culture, customs and characteristics. It is every interesting conception, taking into account that there are more than 1,000 fight promotions worldwide these days. Rizin FF creates an event “Rizin Fighting World Grand-Prix” where the the top competitors from these organizations will gather and compete to figure out the best fighter over the world. The first event will be an 8 man tournament held over the course of two days in December 29th and 31th, at the holy ground MMA Saitama Super Arena. In this arena many MMA events has been held in the past, but this will be the first time in history in which multiple organization s throughout the world participate at this scale.
See current scheduled fighters (Fedor Emelianenko, Kazushi Sakuraba, Shinya Aoki, Gabi Garcia, Rena, Kaido Höövelson):
