Rena Kubota finishes Hanna Tyson with walk-off liver kick knockout at Rizin

Rena Kubota is quickly becoming a star for Rizin Fighting Federation. That continued Saturday.

The Japanese shoot boxing champion beat Hanna “Tyson” Gujwan with a brutal liver kick knockout in the third round at the Rizin 2016 World Grand Prix Finals event at Saitama Super Arena.

The marketable Kubota (3-0) is now perfect in MMA with three straight finishes, all for Rizin. As a kickboxer and shoot boxer, she is 23-5-1. Kubota, still just 25 years old, owns a shoot boxing victory over current UFC strawweight Seo Hee Ham.
