If you have been watching the Rizin events since they started at the end of the year back in 2015, you know Yusuke Yachi 18-6-0 (Win-Loss-Draw).
Yachi trains out of Krazy Bee Gym. He has had some great fights over the last two years and is currently on a 4 fight winning streak.
His last fight against a very tan Satoru Kitaoka was a very impressive K.O. During the final seconds of the fight, Kitaoka was just running on instict and refusing to go down. The Ref has seen enough and called off Yachi’s attack.
After the fight, Yachi took to the mic and in a passionate moment, called out Kron Gracie : 4-0-0 (Win-Loss-Draw).
Gracie, who is also on a 4 fight winning streak, hasn’t fought in Japan in 2017. He has not been seen since his impressive win over Tatsuya Kawajiri 35-10-0 (Win-Loss-Draw) at the Grand Prix at the end 2016.
Kron Gracie is the son of JMMA Royalty and Brazilian Jiujitsu God Rickson Gracie.
Both fighters are high level competitors and prefer a fast pace fighting style. This would be an amazing fight and possibly the fight of the year if Rizin can set it up.
