WATCH: Tenshin Nasukawa’s Decimation of Saiga at RIZIN

Kickboxing and muay thai sensation Tenshin Nasukawa has made a name for himself with a series of amazing performances in both 2016 and 2017 and last night was no different. In a Mixed Rules bout against former K-1 kickboxer Kizaemon Saiga Tenshin was dead set on not even letting it escape the first round, which was kickboxing, to enter into the MMA rounds. Not that he has a problem with MMA, though, as he’s shown against any of the competition that RIZIN has tossed at him that he’s more than game.

SuperKombat Eyes Chinese Market with Partnership with Faith Fight
