In the final fight of the night, we have a welterweight war between two young fight finishers with no intention of going to the judges’ scorecards.

After turning pro, Kinoshita would earn five more first-round finishes, including three knockouts and two submissions, while his only loss was due to Kinoshita grabbing the cage and being disqualified in his only fight at Rizin.

His opponent, Jose Enrique, skipped the amateur leagues and went straight to the pro level with his debut at ‘Open Extreme Manaus’ where he won the fight by second-round retirement.

After racking up four straight wins, Henrique made his LFA debut against Pedro Oliveira in a three-round bout which he won by split decision.

Overall, Yusaku Kinoshita has far more experience and has faced tougher opponents than his current rival in the past.
