RIZIN FIGHTING WORLD GRAND PRIX 2017 Autumn: Aki no Jin Fight Forecast

Fight Forecast is a recurring series at StrikeScoreMMA.com that provides a stats based preview of upcoming events. Since striking stats are not available outside the UFC, we need to get a bit creative. The following uses Fight Matrix rankings, peak rank, Tapology user votes, betting odds and Rankings Momentum.

In this case, the period used for Rankings Momentum was 1/1/2016 to 10/1/2017. Fighters must have been ranked in at least four quarters during the period to be includedTapology scores are as of Oct. 13 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Betting odds will be added once lines are posted on BestFightOdds.com
