Bellator vs. RIZIN 2 and Super RIZIN 2 are coming up, back-to-back this weekend, over Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

The main event of Bellator vs. RIZIN 2 is Patricky Freire taking on RIZIN lightweight champion Roberto de Souza in a lightweight grand prix quarter-final match-up. This fight was supposed to be Patricky Pitbull vs. AJ McKee, but McKee had to bow out due to a medical condition.

Also on the card is a fight for the vacant (and inaugural) Bellator flyweight title between former RIZIN and Bellator bantamweight champion Kyoji Horiguchi and the lesser known Makoto Shinryu (who is on a ten fight winning streak across RIZIN, DEEP, Bellator and CFFC).

Rounding out the card is Kana Watanabe vs. Veta Arteaga, Danny Sabatello vs. Magomed Magomedov and Andrey Koreshov vs. Lorenz Larkin.

The previous Bellator vs. RIZIN show is available on free replay below:

Super RIZIN 2 has three titles on the line with Mikuru Asakura taking on Vugar Karamov in the main event for the vacant RIZIN featherweight belt. The co-main is Hiromasa Ougikubo vs. Juan Archuleta for the vacant RIZIN bantamweight title. Before that RIZIN atomweight champ Seika Izawa will look to stay perfect against Claire Lopez.

Starting off the RIZIN 2 part of the show will be Patricio Freire vs. Chihiro Suzuki. This is a late addition to the card. It was announced this week at the same press conference that revealed McKee was out of the main event.
