RIZIN MMA Rules 66.0kg / 145.5lb

Kleber Koike

Strong Points
Well Rounded | Grappling | Finish rate | Fight control

Strong Points

Kleber has gone undefeated in his 3 RIZIN appearances where Ulka has gone 2-3. Both fighters are labeled as grapplers but Kleber utilizes his Jiu Jitsu while Ulka uses his wrestling. Kleber has an extremely high finish rate and Ulka is the underdog. However, stylistically this fight is much closer than it seems. Ulka has the style where he utilizes presser to advance position and will not stay in Kleber’s guard where the BJJ blackbelt is most dangerous. What Ulka will have planned against Kleber’s variations will be interesting to watch. Kleber would want to dominate Ulka in every situation as stated and ask for a title shot, and Ulka would like to use this opportunity to meddle with the RIZIN Featherweight division.
