PRESS RELEASE – TOKYO  — Following last year’s historic New Year’s Eve co-promotion, BELLATOR MMA and RIZIN Fighting Federation will bring another industry-altering, star-studded event to fight fans in Japan on Sunday, July 30. Headlining the event, which departs from the head-to-head format of last year’s iteration of the crossover card, will be a Bellator Lightweight World Grand Prix Quarterfinal matchup between former Featherweight World Champion  AJ McKee  (20-1) and ex-Lightweight World Champion  Patricky Pitbull (24-11). In addition to the highly anticipated clash between McKee and the second of his Pitbull family foes, former BELLATOR and RIZIN champion  Kyoji Horiguchi  (31-5) will return to fight on home soil when he fights for the inaugural BELLATOR Flyweight World Championship against  Makoto  “ Shinryu” Takahashi  (16-1-1), who enters the bout on a blazing hot, ten-fight winning streak. Plus, Japan’s own  Kana Watanabe  (11-2-1) puts her No.
