Rizin FF put on their second major MMA event a few hours ago at Saitama Super Arena in Japan. The card was headlined by the 65kg superfight between Kron Gracie and Hideo Tokoro. And what an action-packed fight it was!

Tokoro-san is a fan favorite in Japan with a professional career of 60+ fights including classics against Royler Gracie and Royce Gracie, who are Kron's uncles. Tokoro is also the poster boy for our partners Reversal RVDDW and an old friend of ChokeSports.

This was only Kron's third professional MMA fight and he showed he can keep his cool even when Tokoro managed to escape the back position and get back on top. If you have followed Kron's Jiu-Jitsu career then you know he rarely misses a good position, so it was really nice to see his calmness and confidence.

This was a bittersweet moment for us here at ChokeSports because we also have a very strong connection with Kron's father, the one and only Rickson Gracie. Our founder JP-san has Master Rickson as one of his strongest sources of inspiration on and off the mats.

So even though it was hard to see one of these fighters lose tonight, we still feel like both Kron and Tokoro put on a very exciting match where they did not hold back at all and elevated their names even higher. We're already looking forward to their next performance. Hopefully at Rizin's New Year's MMA event on Dec.29!

What Customers Are Saying About Chokesports

I'm always happy to open the package to discover another new obi belt. The quality is still the best, delivery time still there, and most important the service is no 1. I had communication with Lisa Andersen. She wanted to be sure that my order was the right one for my new Shodan young girl. Very dedicated to the client. Simply the best.

I've always had my eye on RVDDW and Isami brand gear but wasn't sure about how to order in the US. ChokeSports made the process extremely easy and the shipping was amazingly fast even including the time allotted for custom patchwork. Extreme recommend to anyone on the fence. Much respect always to ChokeSports.

Best gi from best vendor. This is my third Isami Gi purchase from ChokeSports. I use them for Judo and BJJ. They fit the best, and they feel the best. Super fast shipping too. Rest assured I will order my fourth Isami Gi from ChokeSports in the future.

I want to congratulate the whole company, not only for the excellent work with the black belt I bought, but mainly for the support I had from the first steps of ordering. Connor's help was valuable through the chat line, up to the emails informing me of every detail. My colleagues and I will recommend your company. Thank you!
