MMA Rundown

The new Rizin presser had seven ring girls, a huge GP trophy, Axe Murder Facetime call and more insanity

Rizin just went 100% Rizin at their latest press conference. The MMA world is only 15 days from RFF holding two events in the span of two days on December 29th and 31st respectively. Both shows will be held at the Pride FC cathedral, the Saitama Super Arena, and will feature the second and final rounds of the RFF Open Weight Grand Prix.

To kick off the final promotional push for their end of the year cards, RFF held a press conference that turned into complete madness. A ring card girl fashion show, Wanderlei Silva recording a strange video call and the unveiling of a Grand Prix trophy with a fucking dragon on top of it were just a few of the highlights.
