Rizin is ending 2018 with Rizin 14, which is going to feature a plethora of UFC, Bellator MMA and PFL veterans, plus some of the best talent the country of Japan has to offer.
North American fans originally had no way of watching the event, but now they will because Fite TV is partnering with Rizin to air the show live.
