The 2016 RIZIN Grand Prix Round 2 weigh-ins are now over and it was interesting. Weigh-ins took place and as is often the case when fighters step on the scale, we were treated to some tense and also some fun moments. This is Japan, after all, and if there’s one thing they’re known for it is their creativity and at times a very fun quirkiness. Proof of that was on display as a jacked Cup of Noodles stood watch on the stage the entire time.
So many names graced the stage; King Mo, Mirko Cro Cop, Heath Herring, Valentin Moldavsky, Szymon Bajor, Baruto, Tsuyoshi Kosaka, and Amir Aliakbari were just a few of the fighters to step on the scale for this massive event. Check out the full highlight video below as well as the official results:
