After a nearly yearlong layoff, former UFC contender Pedro Rizzo returns against Satoshi Ishii before the month ends.
Rizzo has been with American Top Team, training alongside the likes of Glover Teixeira and Antonio “Big Foot” Silva. The heavyweight is well prepared.
“I am physically fit and well,” said Rizzo to TATAME. “I assure you I am prepared for everything and I’m sure I’ll win.”
The last time fans saw Rizzo, he took a first round loss to Fedor Emelianenko. It was in Emelianenko’s retirement bout.
They compete at Inoki Genome Federation 26 from the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan on May 26.
