Mei Yamaguchi (山口 芽生 yamaguchi mei?, born (1983-02-03)February 3, 1983), formerly known by her nickname V Hajime (V一 vī hajime?), is a Japanese female mixed martial artist and kickboxer. Her former nickname comes from the V1 armlock wrestling move.[1][2]

Yamaguchi currently fights as a lightweight in the Jewels promotion. She has a notable victory over Yuka Tsuji and was the final Valkyrie Featherweight Champion.[3]

On February 5, 2011 (2011-02-05), Yamaguchi announced that she would begin competing as a freelance fighter and changed her nickname to V.V.[4]

Early life[edit]

Yamaguchi was born in Tokyo, Japan on (1983-02-03)February 3, 1983.[1] While living in Los Angeles, California, she studied some of her elementary school years before returning to Japan.[5] She also studied abroad in the United States during her university years.

Yamaguchi began to learn karate during her residence in the United States around the age of 7 years old, yearning to be like Jackie Chan.[5] During college, she started training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.[5] After returning to Japan, she joined Butoku Kai. She currently serves as the leader of the Morishita branch.

In 2005, Yamaguchi entered into the Max Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Yamaguchi started her professional career in MMA in the lightweight tournament of Smackgirl-F 2007: The Next Cinderella Tournament 2007 First Stage on March 11, 2007 (2007-03-11), where she defeated Anna Saito by submission due to a rear naked choke.[6][7]

Yamguchi won her next fight in Smackgirl, defeating Saori Ishioka with a kneebar, forcing Ishioka to tap in the second round in the semi-finals at Smackgirl-F 2007: The Next Cinderella Tournament 2007 2nd Stage on May 19, 2007 (2007-05-19).[8][9]

On September 6, 2007 (2007-09-06) at Smackgirl 2007: Queens' Hottest Summer, Yamaguchi defeated Emi Tomimatsu by split decision, winning the final of the Next Cinderella Tournament 2007 in the lightweight division.[10][11]

In her last fight with the promotion Smackgirl and her fourth professional match, Yamaguchi was defeated via split decision by Emi Fujino on December 26, 2007 (2007-12-26) at Smackgirl 7th Anniversary: Starting Over.[12][13][14]

Her next bout would be at the first event for the promotion Valkyrie, Valkyrie 01, where she lost by unanimous decision against women's MMA legend Yuka Tsuji on November 8, 2008 (2008-11-08). [15][16][17] It was just the fourth time that Tsuji had been taken to a decision.[18]

Yamaguchi rebounded by winning her next two bouts in the inaugural Valkyrie women's featherweight tournament. The first was a unanimous decision win over Emi Fujino on April 25, 2009 (2009-04-25) at Valkyrie 02 in a rematch of their 2007 bout.[19][20][21] The second tournament bout was against Kyoko Takabayashi, whom Yamaguchi was able to defeat with a close split decision at Cage Force & Valkyrie on July 12, 2009 (2009-07-12), winning the tournament in the process and earning the right to face Yuka Tsuji for Valkyrie's Featherweight championship.[22][23][24][25]

At Valkyrie 04, in her second match against Tsuji, Yamaguchi was once again the underdog, but she managed to defeat Tsuji with a rear naked choke in only 76 seconds.[3][26][27] This was the first time that Tsuji was defeated by a fellow Japanese fighter and only the second time that she had been defeated in her MMA career.[28] Yamaguchi became Valkyrie's Featherweight Champion in what is considered one of the biggest upsets in the history of women's mixed martial arts.[29]

On November 28, 2010 (2010-11-28), Yamaguchi faced Kyoko Takabayashi in a rematch of the 2009 featherweight tournament final and Yamaguchi's first defense of Valkyrie's featherweight title. Yamaguchi barely retained with a contentious majority draw in which the dissenting judge scored the fight in favor of Takabayashi at Valkyrie 08.[30][31]

Yamaguchi faced "Windy" Tomomi Sunaba at Pancrase Impressive Tour 3 on April 3, 2011 (2011-04-03).[32] She defeated Sunaba by majority decision.[33][34][35]

On July 21, 2012 (2012-07-21), Yamaguchi faced Emi Tomimatsu in a rematch at Jewels 20th Ring.[50][51] She defeated Tomimatsu by unanimous decision.[52][53]

Yamaguchi next faced Megumi Fujii at Vale Tudo Japan 2012 on December 24, 2012 (2012-12-24).[54] She was defeated by unanimous decision.[55][56]

On May 25, 2013 (2013-05-25), Yamaguchi faced Seo Ye Jung at Jewels 24th Ring.[57][58] She defeated Jung by submission due to an armbar in the first round.[59][60]

In her second fight outside of Japan, Yamaguchi faced Patricia Vidonic at Pacific Xtreme Combat 40 on October 25, 2013 (2013-10-25) in Guam.[61] She was defeated by split decision.[62]

Submission grappling and shoot boxing career[edit]

Yamaguchi tried her hand in submission grappling, first in the Abu Dhabi Combat Club Japan Trial final qualifier in the under-55 kg class, where she was defeated by points by Yasuko Mogi on April 15, 2007 (2007-04-15).[63] In her second and final submission grappling match, she was once again defeated by points; this time by women's MMA star Miku Matsumoto at DEEP X03 on July 5, 2008 (2008-07-05).[64]

Yamaguchi has had a more successful run in shoot boxing. She began competing on August 23, 2009 (2009-08-23), in the shoot boxing tournament Girls S-Cup 2009, where she defeated by decision South Korean female Muay thai kickboxer Su Jeong Lim and fellow mixed martial artist and karateka Madoka Okada before losing against female shoot boxing rising star Rena Kubota in the tournament final.[65] Yamaguchi won her next two bouts by decision. She participated in the shoot boxing Girls S-Cup 2010, defeating Samanta van Dole by technical submission (standing guillotine choke) and losing against Ai Takahashi by unanimous decision after an extra round.[66]

On August 19, 2011 (2011-08-19), Yamaguchi entered the 2011 Shoot Boxing Girls S-Cup tournament. She faced Mina in the opening round and was defeated by majority decision.[67][68]

Yamaguchi entered the 2012 Shoot Boxing Girls S-Cup on August 25, 2012 (2012-08-25). She defeated Namtarn Por Munagpetch and Lorena Klijn to advance to the final round, but lost to Rena Kubota via unanimous decision in the tournament final.[69][70]

Yamaguchi faced Lorena Klijn in a rematch at Shoot Boxing 2013: Act.3 on June 23, 2013 (2013-06-23).[71][72] She was defeated by unanimous decision.[73][74]

Yamaguchi was scheduled to compete against Du Peiling at the 2013 Shoot Boxing Girls S-Cup Japan Midsummer Festival on August 3, 2013 (2013-08-03).[75][76] However, Peiling suffered an injury and Yamaguchi instead faced Chihiro Kira.[77][78] She defeated Kira by unanimous decision.[79][80]
