Rizin 43 poster

Rizin 43 event took place on June 24, 2023, in Sapporro, Japan, and aired from 1 AM ET in US and across the world.

A featherweight title bout headlined the card where the title was only on the line for Chihiro Suzuki after Kleber Koike Erbst missed weight by 1.3 lbs. Erbst’s 7 fights winning streak ended in his last match against Patricio Pitbull at Bellator vs Rizin 1 event. He won the title in October by beating Juntarou Ushiku, but was stripped without even a title defense.

Suzuki was coming off a win in a kickboxing bout in March, and was also on a 5-fights winning streak in MMA apart from wins in Muay Thai and kickboxing. His last MMA won was against Yoshiki Nakahara at Rizin 40. Was he able to continue on with the momentum and took down Erbst?
