Here is a translation of what was written, provided by Google Translate:

“It is a poster visual of RIZIN.22 that ended in a vision. It is really a pity. We, the RIZIN staff, do not just endure this time of hardship, but want to be ready to power up and greet you after the end! Create a “Midsummer Martial Arts Festival” together and make it a reality!”

There was only one fight announced publicly for the event, which was a lightweight division attraction between Kotetsu Boku and Mikuru Asakura.
