Rizin Fighting Federation kicked off this Tuesday, in Tokyo, Japan, with the Saraba card.
In the main event, Shinya Aoki needed not much time to defeat Kazushi Sakuraba in under 5 minutes.
Aoki, 32, took the match to the ground in the first seconds, passed the guard of 46-year-old Sakuraba and punished the veteran with punches from the mount until the referee stopped the fight.
