When Covid is over Rizin needs to buy international heavyweight talents.

I like the light weight classes, but in the future can Rizin get some heavyweights. Or maybe they should just create an open weight division. That states a limit of 180lbs - ???? It would create more buzz. Have a super open weight tournament. Or super hulk Grand Prix.

Hopefully future Rizin Heavyweight Roster 

1. Hideki Sekine 
2. Hatef Moeil 11-4 record from Germany 
3. Kasim Aras 7-1 récord from Germany 
4. Mingyang Zhang 8-6 record from China 
5. Azamat Nuftillaev 11-0 record from Uzbekistan (he tkod most of his opponents) 
6. Ioannis Arzoumanidis 7-1 record from Greece (he’s a wrestler whose good at ground and pound)
7. Phillipe Lins 14-5 record from Brazil (literally is marketable to Brazil) 
8. Amir Aliakbari 10-3 record from Iran (this dude was a badass wrestler in Rizin) 
9. Daniel James 12-6-1 record from USA 
10. Jae Woong yoon 3-3 record from South Korea last of his 2 wins were TKOs
11. Satoshi Ishii 
12. Rakim Cleveland 22-14 record from USA 
13. Matheus Scheffel 15-7 record from Brazil. 
14. Roque Martinez 
15. Ken Hasegawa 
16. Carlos Toyota 
17. Marcelo Golm
