On December 29th RIZIN will start their 3 day Event here in Japan. This time around Rizin brings the heat once again by adding in someone that we may consider one of the all time best Heavy Weights, Shane Carwin!
Shane has tweeted out a photograph of his contract to get the interested people onboard. We wonder what kind of fight we can expect from Shane given that he has been out for so long and that his had some back surgery to boot.
However, if his past performance counts for anything that we can measure, he will OWN Japan. Shane is an intense and amazing athlete and is always in shape. There seems to be no off days for this guy. Every time he sets foot in the Ring / Cage he brings an exciting show. I am looking forward to seeing his performance.
Rizin is run by the former PRIDE people and it really seems like the old PRIDE days when you go to the show. Having attended many PRIDE events over the years, it is fair to say that Rizin has captured the feeling and essence of days gone by. They also carry one the tradition of giving the fans the fights they want to see. If you are in Japan I highly recommend that you check out their event.
