RIZIN's concept is not to integrate all the existing promotions, it is to create a platform where each promotions and fighters can compete while they keep their diverse culture, customs and characteristics.
It is said that there are more than 1,000 fight promotions exists globally these days. 「RIZIN FIGHTING WORLD GRAND-PRIX」is the event where the top competitors from these organizations will gather and compete to determine the best. The historical first event will be an 8 man tournament held over the course of 2 days December 29th and 31st, at the holy ground of MMA Saitama Super Arena. There have been many events held in the past, but this will be the first time in history in which multiple organizations throughout the world participate at this scale.
There are many sports with「championship games」all over the world, such as the World cup and UEFA Champions League for soccer, World athletics championships and Aquatics championships, World cup volleyball, World cup rugby and so on. We are not here to compete with existing organizations as a sole promotion, we are here to structure a federation and to host, hold and operate fight.
「RIZIN FIGHTING WORLD GRAND-PRIX」will be the first fight event to be holding the「Championship games = Mega tournament」held at a global scale. Our goal is to build a structure where「RIZIN FIGHTING WORLD GRAND-PRIX」will continue to be held 10 years, 100 years from now, and the sport to be loved and accepted throughout all cultures globally, and eventually becoming an Olympic sport.
RIZIN FIGHTING FEDERATION will start the new chapter for fighting.
