There is an absolutely huge MMA event set to go in the early hours of Saturday morning, with Rizin FF 32 getting started at midnight EST. The main car is a mixture of MMA and kickboxing bouts, but with so many fights on the car, we are sticking to just the MMA action, so let’s get to the MMA Betting preview.
MMA Betting Preview for Rizin FF 32
Takahiro Kuniyoshi Vs Sho Sekihara
This Flyweight bout will be the first MMA action on the main card and it’s one that might be over quickly. Kuniyoshi has not had the best start to life as a pro, going 2-3-1 through his first 6 fights. On the flipside, Sekihara is 7-2 and comes into this one on a 4-fight winning run. I like Sekihara to get the win via KO.
Shinya Kumizawa Vs Tanner Lourenzo
The next fight will take place in the 74 KG weight class and will feature a fighter making his first pro start. That would be Lourenzo, who is taking the step up against a fighter who has been lopsided as a pro, going 9-10 overall. Kumizawa, though, has been putting it together of late and comes into this fight with 4 wins in his last 5. I think he gets the decision here.
Mizuki Oshiro Vs Aira Koga
The women are up next for an Atomweight bout and one that I think might go the distance. It has been a lopsided start to life as a pro for Oshiro, who is 3-4 through her first 7 fights. Things have gone much better for Koga, who has won each of her first 2 fights. As mentioned, I think this one goes all the way, with Koga getting the nod.
Tomohiro Adaniya Vs Yuichi Miyagi
A pair of veteran Flyweight’s step into the octagon next for what should be an entertaining bout. Adaniya is 16-15-3 and looking to snap out of a slump that has seen his lose 2 of his last 3 fights. Things have been even worse for Miyagi of last, as he has lost 3 of 4 to fall to 16-10-1. I think this one goes the distance, with Miyagi winning.
Haruo Ochi Vs Tatsuya So
We have another Flyweight bout up next, and again, we are looking at a pair of veteran brawlers. Ochi is 20-9-2 and just snapped out of a 2-fight losing skid with a win last time out. So is 18-17-4, but he has been in form of late, winning 4 of his last 5 fights. This is another one that I see going the distance, with Ochi getting the decision.
Juri Ohara Vs Kohei Tokeshi
The Lightweights are up next, and unlike the previous bouts, I think this one is over quickly. Ohara is coming into this bout on a great run of form, winning 5 in a row to get to 28-17-3. On the flipside, Tokeshi has lost 3 of his last 5 to fall to 6-7-0. This looks like an easy one for Ohara, who I think gets the KO win.
Daryl Lokoku Vs Noah Bey
The Lightweights are next up on the main card, with one of these fighters still looking for his first win as a pro. Lokoku is 9-5-1 overall and comes into this fight on the heels of a win after dropping 2 in a row. This is just the 2nd pro fight for Bey, who came out on the losing end in his first fight. Slight edge goes to Lokoku here.
Bobby Ologun Vs Katsuya Kitamura
The big boys are up next for a Heavyweight bout that is tough to call given the lack of experience for both fighters. Ologun won his first 3 pro fights before losing the next 2. While this is the first pro fight for Kitamura, he looks like a dangerous hitter, and I think he gets the KO win.
Mitsuhisa Sunabe Vs Yoshiro Maeda
We have a Catchweight bout between a pair of very experienced fighters up next on the main card. Sunabe has not has much joy of late and is now sitting with a 29-9-4 career mark, while Maedahas lost 2 in a row and 3 of his last 5 to fall to 38-19-3. A close fight that goes the distance, with the nod going to Maeda.
Rena Kubota Vs Miyuu Yamamoto
We close out the night with an Atomweight bout between a pair of talented ladies. Kubota has won 3 in a row at this level after taking a loss while fighting with Bellator. Yamamoto is 6-5 but is on a run that has seen her lose 2 of her last 3 bouts. I think this is another win for Kubota, but she might need to go the distance to get it.
