Template:Nihongo[1] is a Japanese mixed martial arts fighter. He is a former lightweight champion in World Victory Road's Sengoku-promotion, and the former lightweight champion for Cage Force.

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Template:Expand section In April 2008, at Cage Force 6, Hirota defeated Tomonari Kanomata to win the Cage Force Lightweight Championship.[2]

Hirota then entered World Victory Road's 2008 Lightweight Grand-Prix where he won his first-round fight by knocking out the last International Fight League lightweight champion, Ryan Schultz, at Sengoku 4 in August 2008. He was then eliminated from the tournament in the semi-finals after losing by unanimous decision against Kazunori Yokota at Sengoku 6 in November the same year.[3]

In February 2009 he defended his Cage Force title when he fought to a draw with multiple-time King of Pancrase, Katsuya Inoue, and in May 2009 he defeated Mitsuhiro Ishida by knockout at Shooto Tradition Final.[3]

Sengoku Lightweight ChampionEdit

On August 2, 2009, at Sengoku 9, Hirota was matched up with the eventual winner of WVR's 2008 lightweight tournament and their inaugural lightweight champion, Satoru Kitaoka.[3] Hirota, who was an underdog going in to the fight,[4] had to defend multiple submission-attempts by Kitaoka during the first round, but came back in the second landing strikes on the feet while stopping Kitaoka's takedown-attempts.[5] In the third, Kitaoka was able to take Hirota down and control him on the ground eventually resulting in a yellow-card inactivity-warning for Hirota as he didn't improve his position.[5] The fourth round saw Hirota damage Kitaoka with knee-strikes while on the feet, prompting Kitaoka to shoot in for a takedown. Hirota defended it and continued to land knees to the head of the grounded Kitaoka which forced the referee to step in at 2:50, giving Hirota the TKO-victory to become the new Sengoku Lightweight Champion.[4][5]

Dynamite!! 2009Edit

On December 31, 2009, Hirota faced DREAM and WAMMA Lightweight Champion Shinya Aoki. In the first round Aoki caught Hirota in a hammerlock. When Hirota refused to submit, Aoki broke Hirota's arm and won the fight.[6]

On March 7, 2010, Hirota announced during Sengoku 12 that he would be vacating his belt due to his injuries sustained at Dynamite!! 2009.[7]
