KNOCK OUT has provided an updated look at their second event, KNOCK OUT vol.1, which takes place on February 12th from the Ota-city General Gym in Japan. The card features now two-time MMA veteran Tenshin Nasukawa who made his MMA debut at RIZIN in the final days of December, scoring a TKO victory only to come back two days later and score a submission victory, making an even bigger name for himself in Japan. He's still without an opponent, but the main event promises to be a big one with Genji Umeno taking on Juan Mario Kaewsamrit.
They've added a few more fights to the mix, including Tenshin Nasukawa getting an opponent in Amnat Ruenroeng. It's another former Thai champion for the young Tenshin.
