Yoshiro Maeda faces Mitsuhisa Sunabe at Rizin 32
Yoshiro Maeda will be facing Mitsuhisa Sunabe at Rizin 32. The 39 year old replaces Yutaro Muramoto who suffered an injury and will no longer be appearing in Okinawa on November 20th.
Maeda (38-19-3) is a former Deep bantamweight champion and featherweight King of Pancrase. He is coming off back to back losses on Shooto cards.
Sunabe (29-9-4) is a former strawweight King of Pancrase. This will be the 42 year old’s first time fighting on a Rizin card since 2018 and this catchweight contest is set for 58.5kgs.
The card looks set to be headlined by a super atomweight fight pitting Rena Kubota against Miyuu Yamamoto. The former has been out of action for a year but is currently on a three fight winning streak while the latter fought for the 108lbs title at Rizin 28 but was submitted by Ayaka Hamasaki.
