MMA career[edit]

Osawa's fight record is 21-11-2 and has competed in many of the top organisations such as Shooto, WEC, DREAM and DEEP.[citation needed]

He was scheduled to fight Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Rani Yahya on August 9, 2009 at WEC 42, but due to a foot injury, he was replaced by John Hosman.[1]

Osawa lost via unanimous decision to Antonio Banuelos on November 18, 2009 at WEC 44 and was subsequently released from the promotion.[2]

Osawa made his DREAM debut against Yoshiro Maeda at DREAM.14 on May 29, 2010 winning a close split decision.[3]

On April 29, 2014 Osawa retired after losing a rematch to Takafumi Otsuka, a fighter Osawa had previously beaten in 2011.[citation needed]
