Tenshin Nasukawa defeated Kyoji Horighuchi by decision in their kickboxing bout Sunday in Japan. The match headlined a Rizin MMA event in Tokyo, and drew comparisons to the Floyd Mayweather-Conor Mcgregor boxing fight because MMA star Horiguchi had not competed in kickboxing before. Nasukawa has competed for the Rise and Knock Out promotions in Japan.
Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, the Croatian kickboxing and MMA legend, won his MMA bout by first round TKO against Roque Martinez.
Bob “The Beast” Sapp also competed on the card. The K-1 and MMA veteran defeated retired Egyptian sumo wrestler Abdelrahman Shalan
