Takashi Otsuka (大塚 崇 Ōtsuka Takashi?), better known by his ring name Alexander Otsuka and Otoko Sakari, is a retired Japanese mixed martial artist and professional wrestler who competed in the Light Heavyweight division. He won his last fight at Vale Tudo Fighters Mexico against Masada Masada on May 27, 2006. His ring name is a homage to Alexander Karelin.
Otsuka made the move from a successful professional wrestling career to mixed martial arts competition in 1995. He earned a notable victory over Vale Tudo pioneer Marco Ruas in 1998. Though Otsuka finished his career in 2006 with a 4-13 record, he mostly faced very high-ranked opponents, including all-time greats Renzo Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Igor Vovchanchyn, Quinton Jackson, Wanderlei Silva, and Anderson Silva, all of whom defeated him. Otsuka was known for his toughness in the ring.
