RIZIN Fighting Federation (RIZIN FF) held its RIZIN FF 7 combat sports event this past weekend (Oct. 15, 2017) inside Marine Messe Arena in Fukuoka, Japan, featuring mixed martial arts (MMA) and grappling fights.
While the casual observer may have been interested in the legends match between Frank Shamrock and Kazushi Sakuraba, which ended in a ho-hum draw, the main event had the most fireworks, thanks to the savage body shot uncorked by Rena Kubota in the embedded GIF above.
And things didn’t go much better for UFC veteran Tatsuya Kawajiri:
