September 29th at Pancrase 252

http://www.mmarising.com/news/2013/08/23/rin-nakai-vs-tara-larosa-announced-for-pancrase-252-card/

HUGE test for Nakai. We finally get to see whether or not she is serious about MMA. It also tells us a little something about the upcoming season of TUF.

I agree with OP. We'll see what Rin is truly worth.

Obligatory Rin pics.

There are actually a shitload of them.

Don't go looking if you don't want to be spoiled, but half the cast have either (1) been on twitter during the filming or (2) have fights lined up outside the UFC. At this point, it is pretty common knowledge who makes it into the house and who doesn't.

Can a fight announcement really be considered a spoiler?

Several were mentioned in the announcement thread. Last week, I think?

willienugget - You can't have it both ways. You brought the news and you're 'that guy'. Hell yes it's a spoiler. It's one that was out there for everyone to find but you brought it here. Take the good with the bad.

I didn't think she'd win anyway but now we know.

Rin Nakai is undefeated and has been in and out of the top 10 for the last couple of years. Her getting booked against the former #1 fighter in her weight class is pretty damn big news. Do you honestly expect people to ignore Rin's upcoming bout because her opponent was cast on a reality show? That's not fair to Rin or Pancrase.

I'm not going to list 'em in this thread because I don't want it to get derailed/deleted due to spoilers. Suffice it to say that if you google each of the 32 contestants for upcoming fights and check their twitter activity during TUF filming, you can pretty easily figure out who made it into the house and who didn't.

Not disagreeing. Just saying it was definitely a spoiler and you were the dude that brought it here. It reflects more on Tara for taking a fight. I figure she lost, realized she's never going to be a UFC fighter and said fuck it and fuck them in the process.

I don't think it is anything as dramatic as that.

Tara has had nothing but positive things to say about her experience on TUF, so I doubt she is saying 'fuck' anyone. Plenty of fighters that got bounced on the TUF prelims from this current season and previous seasons have taken fights outside the UFC before the season aired. It is very common. I doubt she is in any trouble with the UFC or that she has any ill will towards them.

She used to fight at 145 but has moved to 135. That puts her two weight classes below Amanda. To be honest, she should really consider dropping down to 125. Rin is ridiculously wide, but at only 5'1" she is at a massive reach disadvantage against everyone she fights.
