Saturday’s RIZIN Landmark 8 not only kicked off 2024 for the Japanese MMA promotion, but saw the company visiting Saga for the first time in its history.

The card was headlined by UFC veteran Yoshinori Horie, taking on Brazilian standout Luiz Gustavo, while promotion staple Yusuke Yachi was also in action. The planned return of former two-time women’s atomweight champ Ayaka Hamasaki, however, was off as the veteran withdrew earlier in the week, replaced by Saori Oshima against Claire Lopez.

Other standouts on the card included another UFC vet in Daichi Abe, Hiroaki Suzuki, and Yuki Ito among others.
