Welcome to Midnight Mania!

RIZIN’s head, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, has confirmed that Tenshin Nasukawa’s fight with Mayweather is back on for New Year’s Eve.

Misunderstanding with Floyd Mayweather was settled. He confronts Nasukawa Tenshin in the RIZIN.14 ring on New Year ‘s Eve on December 31. I will speak to you at the press conference when I return to Japan. #rizinff

Floyd made sure everyone knew that the fight was purely a boxing exhibition match- no kicks allowed.

We will see if Tenshin, who is not known for his restraint in the ring, will just be “moving around” with Floyd on December 31st.


Speaking of notable kickboxers, Nieky Holzken vs. Cosmo Alexandre is going to be hot fire- especially in four-ounce gloves!

This is me. Especially in jiu-jitsu- I don’t have time for all that. I came to drill and roll.

I want to pass up on including these McDojo videos... but they are always so good, the technique in them so deadly.
