Another super atomweight fight has been added to the Rizin 20 card. Miyuu Yamamoto faces Suwanan Boonsorn at the Saitama Super Arena on December 31st.
As usual the promotion took to Twitter to break the news:
Yamamoto (5-4) is the older sister of Japanese MMA legend Kid Yamamoto and has won four out of her last five fights. The 45 year old beat Kanna Asakura by decision at Rizin 16 but was stopped by Seo Hee Ham at Rizin 19.
Boonsorn (4-2) is 12 years younger than her opponent. ‘Amp’ is coming off a submission win over Yoon Ha Hong at Deep-Jewels 26 but was stopped by Ayaka Hamasaki at Rizin 18.
As previously announced Kai Asakura rematches Manel Kape at Rizin 20. The fight will have the bantamweight belt, which was recently vacated by Kyoji Horiguchi, on the line.
Jiri Prochazka defends his light heavyweight strap against promotional newcomer C.B. Dolloway. The other title bout on the card sees Hamasaki defending her super atomweight strap against Ham.
Meanwhile Patricky Freire faces Luiz Gustavo and Johnny Case takes on Tofiq Musaev in the semi finals of the Rizin Lightweight Grand Prix, which will conclude on the same night.
