Mixed martial arts record from Sherdog

Kanna Asakura (Japanese: 浅倉栞南); born October 12, 1997 in Chiba, Japan is a Japanese mixed martial artist. She competes in the Atomweight (106 lb) division and is currently signed with the Rizin Fighting Federation.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]


Before transitioning to mixed martial arts, Asakura won first at the 2011 Klippan Ladies International Wrestling Tournament in the cadet division for 38kg.[1]

Mixed Martial Arts Career[edit]

Asakura made her professional mixed martial arts debut on October 4, 2014 when she faced Naomi Okaki at Vale Tudo Japan 6 and won by unanimous decision. Following this, Asakura compiled a professional record of 9-2, with wins over Yasuko Tamada and Saori Ishioka, before signing with the Rizin Fighting Federation to join their Super Bantamweight World Grand Prix Tournament in December 2017[2]. Asakura advanced to the finals, then competing in front of 18,316 fans in what was arguably the biggest women’s title fight in Japanese MMA history, choked out Shoot Boxing superstar Rena Kubota to become the inaugural Rizin FF Women’s Super Atomweight Champion.[3]

On May 6, 2018 Kanna Asakura faced Melissa Sophia Karagianis at Rizin 10. She won the fight via three round unanimous decision extending her win streak to 7. After the fight Rena Kubota entered the ring and challenged her to a rematch. Soon after the fight was made official, and scheduled to take place on July 29, 2018 at Rizin 11 in Saitama, Japan[4]. Despite several improvements from Rena, Asakura used her relentless pressure to win the bout by unanimous decision.[5] After the bout Asakura was seen hugging kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa, fuelling further speculation that they may be in a relationship.
