Ham Seo Hee made a big statement in her RIZIN debut on Sunday, with a blistering first round TKO over DEEP Jewels champion Tomo Maesawa.
The ROAD FC atomweight champion wasted no time getting things underway. She came out strong, backed Maesawa into a corner and landed knee after knee until referee Jason Herzon stepped in and literally tossed Ham halfway across the ring.
The finish came at 3:14 of round one.
In her post-fight interview Ham (21-8) said she was eyeing RIZIN’s atomweight title, but first called for a fight against Miyuu Yamamoto.
Yamamoto (5-3) is coming off a huge decision win over Kanna Asakura at RIZIN 16, out-classing Asakura with her wrestling on the way to a dominant unanimous decision win.
With RIZIN bringing Yamamoto into the ring for a photo with Ham, an official booking is likely in the wings.
