Rin Nakai out of tonight’s RIZIN 11 bout against Sugiyama, kickboxing addition joins line-up
Acute nephritis is, essentially, inflamed kidneys. And kidney problems are nothing to sneeze at. So, despite this being a bit of a hit to the card, we wish Rin Nakai a speedy recovery!
Because of the last-minute bout removal, a kickboxing bout has been added to the card to keep it at a solid ten fights.
