RIZIN FF, the combat sports promotion led by former PRIDE FC head Nobuyuki Sakakibara, held their second event appropriately called Rizin FF 1 on April 17th, 2016 at the 10,000 capacity Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan. The event was headlined by Jiri Prochazka and Kazuyuki Fujita and also featured a tag-team grappling match between Kazushi Sakuraba & Hideo Tokoro as they faced off against Wanderlei Silva & Kiyoshi Tamura. Brazilian women’s MMA monster Gabi Garcia made her second appearance for the newly minted organization as she welcomed Anna Malyukova to Japanese MMA.

In other action, former UFC fighter Daron Cruickshank faced Shinji Sasaki, Teodoras Aukstuolis took on the not-so much heralded Jaideep Singh and Japanese women’s MMA sensation RENA battled Cyndi Alves. Check below for complete results, photos and videos from Rizin FF 1.
