Ryohei Kurosawa (born 10 May 1993) is a Japanese mixed martial artist currently competing as a flyweight in Shooto. A professional competitor since 2012, he has spent nearly the entirety of his career fighting under the Shooto banner. He is the former Shooto World Flyweight (114 lb) Champion. He is currently the #8 ranked contender in the Shooto rankings,[3] while Fight Matrix has him ranked as the #13 strawweight (121.9 lbs) in the world as of 21 April 2020.[4]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Kurosawa's first fight outside of the Shooto organization was under the banner of GLADIATOR, where he made his debut against Kuya Ito. Kurosawa won the fight in the first round by way of TKO.[5]

His next fight was against Hiroyuki Takahashi. Kurosawa won the fight through a unanimous decision.[6] He would next face Tateo Iino, whom he would beat by a unanimous decision.[7] In his next fight against Sho Nishida, Kurosawa earned his first submission victory, winning through a rear naked choke in the second round.[8] In his fourth fight Kurosawa fought Tateo Iino in a rematch, winning once more by way of a unanimous decision.[9] Four months later Kurosawa won a unanimous decision against Masayoshi Kato.[10]

Kurosawa's would then fight against one of world's best strawweights in Ryuto Sawada. Kurosawa won a unanimous decision.[11] He next faced Atsushi Takeuchi, scoring his second career TKO win, stopping Takeuchi in the second round.[12] His first career loss came at the hands of Junji Ito, who KO'd him in the first round.[13] Kurosawa bounced back with a majority decision win over Tomohiro Adaniya.[14]

This set up a second fight against Ryuto Sawada for the vacant Shooto World Flyweight (114 lb) Championship, a highly anticipated rematch among the fans of the lower weight classes.[15] Kurosawa would decisively end the rivalry, after he TKO'd his opponent in the second round, and won the Shooto World Flyweight (114 lb) Championship.[16] Ryohei Kurosawa would later vacate the title.

Following a three year hiatus, Kurosawa would once again fight under the Shooto banner, this time against Yuya Kodama. Kurosawa won by way of a rear naked choke.[17] Four months later Kurosawa fought the Team Lakay representative Jerome Wanawan. He won the fight with a stunning first round right hook KO.[18] In his next fight, Kurosawa would face a young Ryosuke Honda.[19] He suffered an upset split decision loss.[20]
