Toshiomi Kazama is a professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter who currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Lightweight division. He has been competing professionally since 2011, and he won the Cage Force Lightweight Grand Prix championship in 2013. His fighting style is based on Japanese Jujitsu and Karate which he learned while growing up. Throughout his career, Toshiomi has proven to be an exciting fighter with a well-rounded skill set, making him one of the most highly-regarded fighters in the sport today.
Born December 3rd 1980 in Fujisawa, Japan, Toshiomi was raised by his mother after his father left when Toshiomi was only five years old. His mother worked hard to make ends meet so that her son could have access to martial arts training at an early age – something she viewed as essential for life skills such as discipline, respect and self control. In addition to learning from traditional martial arts teachers in Japan throughout his youth, he also attended multiple seminars focused on MMA training techniques taught by some of the best combat sports athletes from around the world – including former UFC champion B J Penn among others.
By 2009 Kazama had developed into an experienced MMA practitioner and began competing professionally shortly thereafter – winning three out of four fights during this initial run before taking some time off from competition due to injuries suffered during those bouts. After recovering from these injuries he returned stronger than ever and successfully won all eight of his next fights via either submission or knockout over a two year span – culminating with him becoming crowned Champion at Cage Force’s Lightweight Grand Prix tournament held November 23rd 2013 where he defeated Minoru Kato via unanimous decision after three grueling rounds of action packed fighting!
On July 19th 2014 it was announced that Toshiomi Kazama had officially signed a multi fight deal with UFC and would be making his debut against Thiago Tavares later that year at UFC Fight Night: Maia vs LaFlare in Brazil where both men were victorious! Since then Kazama has gone on to win seven more fights inside the Octagon while demonstrating why fans have come to know him as ‘The Samurai’ – possessing incredible physicality & strength coupled with calculated technique & strategy creating what can only be described as true mixed martial artistry!
Outside of MMA competition Toshiomi actively supports various charities across Asia through fundraising events related specifically towards children’s medical care & education initiatives; showing how much heart is really behind this warrior athlete’s seemingly tough exterior shell.. The future looks bright for Toshioma Kazama as there are no signs stopping him anytime soon… With 22 wins under his belt already all eyes remain fixed firmly ahead upon what accomplishments may arise next for The Samurai himself!
