“I’ve always wanted to try out MMA but there weren’t any gyms in my area. The moment a gym opened up, I was the first one to sign up” “I’ve fought so many times I don’t remember my real record.” “I want to call out all current RIZIN Bantamweights. I don’t feel like losing to anybody at the moment. I want to take out the famous ones one by one. But first I need to take care of the opponent standing in front of me”

Takuma Masuda (62.90kg)

“I was 18 when I was wandering around lost in life when my current coach invited me over to train. MMA has changed my life and I’m here to show my dedication.” “I like to strike and I always go for the knockout like my idol Badr Hari” “I had a feeling I was going to get a call from RIZIN soon so I’m not surprised that I’m here today. Getting here isn’t that hard, what’s hard is to leave results and remain on the roster which I will do. I am here to stay.” “Ever since the fight has been announced, so many RIZIN fans are like [who the heck is that guy] so I’m going in there with very low expectations and zero pressure which is awesome.” “I have nothing to lose and everything to gain with my performance. I’m nothing but motivated.”

“I’ve prepared myself to perform well so all I have to do is to go in there and do my thing.” “My opponent is constantly in your face, never backs down and very durable.” “If all the aspects click I think we can see my opponent go out but maybe it may go the other way. I am also prepared to go full rounds because my opponent moves a lot.” “I’m always looking for that home run but I’m an MMA fighter and can fight in many areas.” “I don’t really care if there is a crowd or no crowd. I zone in once I step into the ring.”

Kuya Ito (60.95kg)

“I’m injury free and feel great. I’m in the best condition possible.” “I was supposed to fight on the first LANDMARK event but covid forced me to withdraw from the fight so I plan to make back what I lost.” “My opponent has dangerous power but I’m not sure if it will land on me. He knocked out a Shian who I fought in the past, but I think Shian made a mistake and paid for it. I will not make that mistake.” “This fight will not go to the ground, and it will be a striking battle about who can deliver more punishment and who can take more punishment.”

Nadaka Yoshinari vs. Yushei Shirahata

“There have been some hiccups leading up to this fight but I’m very excited that I’m back here and I can’t wait to fight in RIZIN again.” “Me and my opponent have trained for about a couple months right before this fight so we both know what we can do, so it’s going to be a bit weird but what we do during practice and what we do in a fight is totally different so I’m not worried.” “My opponent is very well rounded and he’s very tough. But I’m here to show the greatness of Muay Thai so I want to show everything I have and eventually finish the fight by KO.” “What Tenshin has accomplished in RIZIN is absolutely amazing. I can’t say I will replace him after his departure, but I will do my best to become a figure that leads the future of Japanese combat sports.”

Yusei Shirahata (52.50kg)

“I started kickboxing when I was 8 years old because I didn’t want to lose the fight against my big brother at home.” “I was 14 years old when I first saw Yoshinari’s fight in Muay Thai. That is what inspired me to practice kickboxing with elbows so it’s an honor for me to be fighting him.” “I’ve held 3 belts in the past but I’m hungry for more. I want to make a name of myself on the big stage with exposure. Watch my fights, watch my walkouts and you will not be disappointed.” “We both have a strong Muay Thai base so I want to show a great Muay Thai fight with him and amuse the viewers.”

Shoji vs. Hiroaki Suzuki

“I’m prepared to fight at Featherweight this year,” “This will be a new venue for me so I’m going to check out how the venue is built and try to figure out the best way to entertain people with my walkout.” “My opponent is a great striker and very dangerous. I have zero intentions of striking with him. I will take him down, lay and pray and win by points. I apologize in advance for my boring performance.” “The striking Samurai will not be here today. I suffer from a condition called [too much fan service]. So, the fact that there won’t be a crowd will make it easier for me to put on a boring performance.” “I know he has the advantage with his body physique and size, but I want to show that technique and experience can overcome size.”

Hiroaki Suzuki (65.90kg)

“This fight is streaming only so I know I need to put on a fun fight in order to stay under the spotlight.” “After my loss on NYE I have been lifting a lot to become stronger and use my strength in MMA fights.” “My opponent is a true veteran and a former Champion. I know my last performance was bad, so I’m not going to hold back and do what I know what to do best. Be aggressive and go for the finish.” “Shoji mentioning that he’s going to lay and pray is something I respect. Doing what it takes to get the win is something beautiful.”

Chihiro Suzuki vs. Ren Hiramoto

“This will be my first time headlining an MMA event but I don’t really feel any pressure about it. I’m going to take this fight just like any other fight and do my best to win.” “My opponent has great striking and I think the fight will turn out to be a slugfest.” “A fight is a fight. If you hit your opponent in the face he goes down if he hits you, you go down. I’m not worried about small details and distances and stuff. I try not to think too much” “I think people want to see the aggressive Chihiro who never backs down. I will show exactly what they expect out of me.” “I’m doing this to find out how tough I can become. I don’t care about fame and glory. I want to pursue the life of a warrior.”

Ren Hiramoto (65.65kg)

“I’m finally going to be able to show what I’ve been working on in the ring. I’m very excited and can’t wait until the bell rings.” “People still talk about me even though I haven’t fought in over a year which means that people have high expectations of me. They want to see how I’ve evolved since my debut. Which also means that I have more hype than the active fighters in RIZIN.” “My opponent has been training MMA for quite a while. He hits hard and although he looks sloppy, he's actually quite technical and his punches are hard to predict.” “If I continue to evolve like I am, I believe I can change the entire fight industry. I have that much potential.” “I will look for a quick devastating finish.”
