« Japanese mixed martial arts event to host Tekken 7 exhibition »

Rizin Fighting Federation's fight card on Sept. 30, 2018, will feature three digital bouts between top Japanese and Korean Tekken players.

Rizin 13 will feature 12 normal MMA fights, but the seventh match (which doubles as the first intermission) will consist of three separate T7 matches: Chanel vs. Take, Qudans vs. Nobi and Knee vs. Noroma. 

This is not the first time Rizin has offered an event for Tekken players, holding a four-player tournament featuring Yuu, Nobi, Kari and Kagemaru as part of Rizin x Mastercup at the end of 2017.

In an Instagram post, Rizin president Nobuyuki Sakakibara wondered whether this collaboration will be considered "revolutionary, or reckless" but also stated, "I do believe that there is a future in our sport with a collaboration with esports. Come join us in the experience that nobody in the world has never experienced."

Rizin 13 takes place on Sept. 30, 2018, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Readers interested in learning more about the event or watching Rizin 13 can head over to FITE.
