Taneisha Tennant Fighting on Battle of Millennium 3 Card – Live on GFL.tv
A few days before Battle of the Millenium III, our subject for this edition of Fighter of New York, Taneisha Tennant, is focusing solely on her upcoming Muay Thai fight. The amateur fighter out of Budokan Martial Arts Academy/Renzo Gracie Lynbrook is confident. “Training camp has been extensive, and I am ready.”
Tennant, like her training style, isn’t one to waste words. “I have been focusing on the basics. I am keeping my style sharp, working hard on my cardio, and ensuring I don’t gas out. But I’m ready to go.” The talented fighter has a wide array of skills to pull from–she trains Muay Thai, Brazilian JiuJitsu, boxing, kung-fu, and stick-fighting. All her training is located at Budokan and she takes advantage every seminar that comes her way.
As a competitor, Taneisha Tennant is starting her career in what seems to be a golden era for female fighters. Remarkable names such as Holly Holm, Miesha Tate, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Ronda Rousey, and Cristiane Justino routinely make headlines. Tennant is in good company, as she and other fellow New York-based fighters such as Angela “Overkill” Hill and Jennie Nedell continue to help build women’s image in combat sports. Tennant trains day in and day out and thinks of nothing other than the upcoming fight. It does not matter who her opponent is or what they have accomplished — this talented young fighter only concentrates on what she knows she is capable of doing, and the execution of making it happen.
