Today I don’t want to preview Tension’s upcoming bout but to instead recommend to any and everyone that they seek-out and watch as many of his fights as possible. Although he is one of the most technically proficient fighters in the world — heralded for his fight IQ — every-time he enters the ring, Tenshin brings a relentless pace backed up by unreal natural speed and power. It is this combination of technique and aggression that undeniably makes Tenshin one of the most entertaining fighters in the world. I implore you to watch Tension’s fights as he is without a doubt one of the most compelling fighters in all of combat sports.
