Mixed martial arts run deep in the Tynanes household. Both his father and brother fight competitively, which sparked Lowen Tynanes’s interest in the sport. Lowen credits his father as his inspiration and the reason he started training. He first came to Asia in 2011, where a then 20-year old Lowen made his professional debut at an event in Nagoya, Japan. He was the first fight of the evening while his father Myles was the main event. Both father and son emerged with victories.
