The pinnacle Japanese promotion held their annual New Year’s Eve event in Saitama Super Arena. What followed was perhaps the pinnacle event of 2019, from the opening ceremonies to the stakes at hand with the semifinal and finale of the lightweight grand prix, from the 3 title fights to the continued cross-promotion of Bellator and RIZIN. The biggest names of the promotions were showcased, including Tenshin Nasukawa, the Asakura brothers, Patricky Pitbull, Rena Kubota and Ayaka Hamasaki.
