Kyoji Horiguchi has been pulled from his New Year’s Eve fight against Kai Asakura due to injury, per a press conference on Thursday. It was reported that Horiguchi tore his ACL.
RIZIN says they will announce another main event soon.
Photos surfaced earlier in the week of Kyoji Horiguchi in a wheelchair with a bandage on his right knee.
The fight was set to be a rematch between the two after Asakura earned a first round stoppage win in a non-championship affair.
