Tenshin Nasukawa Destroys Martin Blanco To Win ISKA Featherweight Title

Tenshin Nasukawa continued to prove why he is one of the finest Japanese prospects in years, defeating Martin Blanco in violent fashion at RIZIN 16.

Say what you want about his somewhat farcical showdown with Floyd Mayweather last December, Nasukawa remains an incredible talent – one who will likely achieve great things in both kickboxing and mixed martial arts.

At just 20-years-old, he has already managed to put together a rather remarkable highlight-reel, one that displays him utilizing punches, kicks, elbows, knees and everything in between in getting the job done.

He appeared on today’s RIZIN 16 in hopes of capturing the ISKA featherweight title, an honour that saw him paired up against Martin Blanco.

The finish, when it came, was a tour-de-force in violence from Nasukawa, a second-round beating that saw one particularly brutal knee to the body end the night for his opponent.
