Video: Watch Wanderlei Silva ‘s RIZIN Open Workout

Back in the beginning of March when we broke the news that Sakuraba and Wanderlei Silva would grapple each other in a tag team submission bout, our brains felt like we took a looping Fedor hook. Was this real life? It turns out it was and that this crazy shit goes down this weekend.

When it was first announced, the rules weren’t pinned down but Nobuyuki Sakakibara stated he wanted history-making “extreme” rules. He even threw out the idea of Pancrase style palm strikes being legal.

We still have no official statement on the rules, but we do have this video of Wanderlei’s open workout where he practices multiple variations of stomps, soccer kicks and overall lethal shit.

Watch the official RIZIN video below as well as unofficial video of the striking portion and grappling portion of the open workout.
