Ayaka Hamasaki will take on Tomo Maesawa at Rizin 22. The strawweight fight is one of two bouts added to the August 9th card which is set for Yokohama.

Hamasaki (19-3) is the former Rizin 108lbs champion. Maesawa (13-10) is the reigning Deep-Jewels 105lbs champion so both fighters will be moving up in weight for this fight.

At Rizin 20 last December the super atomweight belt changed hands with Hamasaki dropping a split decision to Seo Hee Ham. It snapped a five fight winning streak for the 38 year old that encompassed victories over Jinh Yu Frey, Kanna Asakura and Mina Kurobe.

Maesawa doesn’t have quite such an impressive resume. But she is coming off a decision win over fellow veteran Emi Tomimatsu at Deep-Jewels 26 last October.

The other fight added to the card today is a flyweight kickboxing bout. It pits Rui Ebata, who was stopped in the first round by Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin 20, against Seiki Ueyama

As previously announced Rizin 22 features a bantamweight fight pitting Naoki Inoue against Shooto Watanabe. Also on the card is a super atomweight contest pitting Kanna Asakura against Mizuki Furuse.

The other two fights confirmed are a lightweight bout pitting Yusuke Yachi against Roberto de Souza and a featherweight fight between Tetsuya Seki and Yojiro Uchimura.
