He competed in many mixed martial arts fights in other various promotions such as TFC, ZST, Shooto, RINGS and K-1 Hero's.

Vale Tudo Japan[edit]

Tokoro faced Shooto legend Rumina Sato at Vale Tudo Japan 2012 on December 24, 2012.[9] Tokoro defeated Sato by TKO due to punches and elbows in the first round.[10]

He then faced Taylor McCorriston at Vale Tudo Japan: VTJ 2nd on June 22, 2013.[11] Tokoro won the fight via heel hook submission.[12]
