One of the UFC’s top 125lb fighters is officially gone from the UFC and has already found himself a new home overseas. Japanese flyweight Kyoji Horiguchi was announced as leaving the promotion last week and has just inked a new deal with Rizin FF.
Horiguchi exited the UFC riding a three fight win streak, with his only loss in the promotion coming to longtime UFC flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Rizin promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara announced the news earlier today and an opponent is expected to be revealed shortly.
