Asakura (14-1) scored a stunning stoppage victory over Horiguchi at Rizin 18. It was a non title bout which means that the latter remains the promotion’s bantamweight champion, despite the devastating defeat.
Also on the card Hamasaki (19-2) will be defending her super atomweight title against Ham (22-8). The latter also holds the Road FC 105lbs strap and has won five fights out of five since being released by the UFC.
