    I thought this would be of some interest to people here in the kickboxing forum after his recent kickboxing win over yet another overmatched Japanese MMA fighter in a kickboxing match at Rizin FF 10 in Fukuoka this past weekend. Apparently the NY Post, a major daily tabloid newspaper in NYC ran a story in the sports section and it got picked up by Yahoo.com where I just saw it on the front page:

    Well, we know that he is primarily a kickboxer, but he has fought MMA before and just fought on what was mainly a MMA card with a few kickboxing bouts mixed in at Rizin, so confusion from the mainstream new media is not surprising. What's most notable about this is that he somehow made the front page of one of the top most trafficked news sources in the world with his name & photo exposed to many millions of readers who may never have heard of him before.

    that was cool but its not the first time a do mawashi kaiten geri knock someone down and will be not the last thats for sure.

    I like tenshin but looks like Rizin make him the slaughter man while KNOCK OUT and RISE give him good opponnents

    Taiga is free from K-1 Now,time to Rizin give Tenshin a tough kickboxing matchup...

    He is, but I read a that Karaevfan twitter post that Rizin is targeting a 60kg with Tenshin,probably Taiga and Kyoji Horiguchi(the best active JMMA fighter imo)


    A tournament like this would be an K-1 quality seal :)

    i really hope it materializes.

    not that much. Taiga fought 55 KG before, and Tenshin weighted in at 58Kg at Rizin 10.

    Fought at 60 kg in K-1 didn't he? Fights at 61.5 kg in a tournament on the next Kunlun. Dunno how much smaller he might be compared to the others though.

    it seems to be, it would be acceptable lefting only for Kakutogi or something else but hanging out with these mma guys and casuals didnt seem better then here imo.

    well i know that he had a beef with some guys here and the trolls but there is the ignore list for this reason :(
