RIZIN continues to build its returns to the Saitama Arena, adding Satoru Kitaoka vs. Johnny Case to RIZIN 17.
Kitaoka has amassed a whopping 42-19-9 record in MMA, but is coming off a tough loss to Roberto de Souza at RIZIN 15 earlier this year.
Kitaoka had his 70th fight at RIZIN 15 and was out to impress, but a vicious 12-punch combination from de Souza ended the fight in round two.
He is now set to meet former UFC lightweight Johnny “Hollywood” Case, who makes his second appearance with RIZIN.
Over the weekend the promotion announced the debut of ROAD FC atomweight champion Ham Seo Hee, who meets DEEP Jewels champion Tomo Maesawa.
RIZIN 17 is set for the Santana Arena on 28 July.
