The Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, is the site of Bellator MMA and RIZIN FF. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch the best warriors from both promotions square off in a battle for glory. Let’s check the odds and see what they say.
When compared to their RIZIN counterparts, all Bellator fighters come out on top.
Bellator lightweight division betting favors AJ McKee Jr (-220) against Roberto de Souza (+176). McKee Jr is a former featherweight champion for the promotion. Patricio “Pitbull” Freire, the current 145-pound champion in Bellator, is a -550 favorite. RIZIN’s featherweight king Kleber Koike Erbst is his opponent, and he carries a hefty +380 dog tag.
Bellator will be represented by Kyoji Horiguchi, a former bantamweight champion of both Bellator and RIZIN, who will be facing off against Hiromasa Ougikubo of RIZIN. Horiguchi is the card’s biggest betting favorite, but he has a high price tag of -800. Ougikubo is listed as a +530 underdog despite being the favorite to win the bantamweight division at RIZIN’s Japan Grand Prix 2021 competition.
Next up on the card is Gadzhi Rabadanov, who is favored by a massive -440 against +320 Koji Takeda. Juan Archuleta is favored by the same margin over Soo Chul Kim, although the former is now at -174.
