Hatsu Hioki (日沖発 Hioki Hatsu?) (Japanese pronunciation: [çioki hatsu͍̥], born July 18, 1983) is a Japanese professional mixed martial artist signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship competing in the featherweight division. He is the former Shooto Lightweight Champion, Sengoku Featherweight Champion, and TKO Featherweight Champion. Hioki is a long time Shooto veteran and has fought most of his fights in Japanese promotions including the largest Mixed Martial Arts organization at the time, Pride Fighting Championships.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

TKO Major League MMA[edit]

Hioki won his first MMA title in the Canadian promotion TKO Major League MMA, by defeating Mark Hominick for the featherweight belt. Prior to this Hioki had only one loss to Hiroyuki Takaya in Shooto and had a record of 8-1-1. He successfully defended this title twice before participating in the Sengoku Featherweight Grand Prix tournament.

Sengoku Featherweight Grand Prix[edit]

Hioki defeated Masanori Kanehara in the semi-final of the tournament but was unable to continue on to the final to fight Michihiro Omigawa due to an injury in his bout with Kanehara. Kanehara replaced Hioki for the final and ended up winning the tournament.

Shooto Featherweight Championship[edit]

On May 30, 2010 Hioki fought Takeshi Inoue for the Shooto Featherweight Championship (143 lbs) and won by a split decision making him the 9th fighter to win it and the 8th Japanese fighter to do so. Hioki had a controversially lost to Antonio Carvalho during his Shooto career.

Sengoku Featherweight Championship[edit]

After defeating Jeff Lawson at Sengoku Raiden Championships 14, Hioki received a title shot against then WVR: Sengoku Featherweight Champion Marlon Sandro. The Championship fight was held at World Victory Road Presents: Soul of Fight on December 30, 2010. Hioki defeated Sandro via unanimous decision. Hioki's superior reach and movement allowed him to out land and counter the aggressive Brazilian.[2] Hioki became the third featherweight Champion for Sengoku.

Hioki vacated the title on June 25, 2011 after signing with the UFC.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

On the same date he vacated the Sengoku Featherweight Championship: June 25, 2011, UFC officials announced that Hioki had signed a multi fight deal with the UFC. He debuted at UFC 137 on October 29, 2011, where he defeated George Roop via split decision.

Hioki faced veteran Bart Palaszewski on February 26, 2012 at UFC 144, winning the bout via unanimous decision. Hioki dominated the whole fight taking down Bart Palaszewski several times and applying a variety of submission attempts.

Hioki was offered a title shot but turned it down and instead faced Ricardo Lamas on June 22, 2012 at UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida.[3] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Hioki faced Clay Guida on January 26, 2013 at UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Dodson.[4] Despite landing more strikes than Guida, and consistently looking for submissions after being taken to the ground, Guida defeated Hioki via split decision.[5]

Hioki faced Darren Elkins on August 28, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 27.[6] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Hioki faced Ivan Menjivar on March 1, 2014 at The Ultimate Fighter China Finale.[7] He won the fight via unanimous decision.
