Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Kimura made his promotional debut against Chico Camus on February 2, 2013 at UFC 156.[3] He won the fight via submission in the third round.

In his second fight with the promotion, Kimura faced Mitch Gagnon on September 21, 2013 at UFC 165.[4] He lost the fight via submission, resulting in the first loss of his professional MMA career.

Kimura faced promotional newcomer Jon Delos Reyes on January 4, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 34.[5] He won the fight via submission in the first round.[6]

Kimura faced George Roop on April 16, 2014 at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale.[7] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Kimura was expected to face Ian Entwistle on September 5, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 50.[8] However, Entwistle pulled out of the bout citing an injury. Subsequently, Kimura was paired with Chris Beal at the event.[9] In turn, Kimura also pulled out of the bout and was replaced by Tateki Matsuda.[10]

Kimura faced promotional newcomer Henry Cejudo on December 13, 2014 at UFC on Fox 13.[11] He lost the fight by unanimous decision, and was subsequently released from the promotion shortly after.
