RIZIN FF is going international for RIZIN Landmark 7 in Azerbaijan this Saturday. Headlining the event is reigning RIZIN FF featherweight champion Vugar Karamov, who defends for the first time against Chihiro Suzuki. ‘Vugi’ won gold in his most recent appearance at Super RIZIN 2, where he submitted Mikuru Asakura with a rear-naked choke in their fight this past July. On the same night, Suzuki earned his championship opportunity with a first-round finish of reigning Bellator featherweight champion Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire.
We also have Tofiq Musayev returning for a fight against Koji Takeda. Musayev recent returned to the win column with a second-round KO of Akira Okada at the co-promoted Bellator MMA x RIZIN 2 in July.
