Rizin 42 Weigh-in Results: 1 Fighter Misses Weight


Rizin Fighting Federation has had to invoke an infrequently used rule ahead of Rizin 42.

There was little drama on the scale as most of the fighters ahead of the show made weight, including main eventers Kai Asakura and Yuki Motoya for their bantamweight clash. However, Takuya Yamamoto failed to make weight for his featherweight match against Takeji Yokoyama. Yamamoto came in at 147.5 pounds, and as a result, he has received a red card penalty under the "no contest rule," which means he is penalized 50% of his points should his match go to decision, he will be ineligible to win the fight, and it will be declared a no contest if he prevails.

Rizin 42 will air live on Fite.TV starting at 1 a.m. ET/10 p.m. PT on Saturday morning.
