Two more bouts have been added to the Rizin 29 lineup, as Yusaku Nakamura will face Daichi Kitakata in a flyweight MMA affair, and Nadaka Yoshinari will meet Chikai Limura in a 115-pound kickboxing-rules contest with elbows allowed.
Rizin 29 takes place on June 27 at Maruzen Intech Arena Osaka in Osaka, Japan, and features four first-round matchups in the promotion’s bantamweight grand prix.
A single-event pass for international stream of the Rizin 29 pay-per-view is available for $24.99 here. Additionally, a bundled package of the Rizin 28 and Rizin 29 pay-per-views can be purchased for $29.99.
Nakamura has lost four of his last six professional outings, including a first-round KO loss to Tatsuki Saomoto in his most recent appearance at Rizin 23. A former Pancrase strawweight champion, Kitakata came up short in his promotional debut, dropping a unanimous verdict against Saomoto at Rizin 25 this past November.
Yoshinari owns a 35-5-1 recording in kickboxing and has claimed multiple titles in that discipline. He’ll take a nine-bout winning streak into his matchup with Limura, who is 3-1 as a pro kickboxer.
