Seichi Ikemoto (池本誠知?, born August 24, 1975) is a Japanese mixed martial artist. He is a veteran of Shooto, PRIDE and DEEP. His specialty is a "double punch", in which he puts his hands together and throws them at his opponent.

Biography and career[edit]

Ikemoto is a former holder of the DEEP Welterweight championship,[1] which he obtained by defeating Hidehiko Hasegawa at DEEP 36 via unanimous decision. He lost the title by dropping a unanimous decision to Yuya Shirai at DEEP 45 in January 2010.

Ikemoto was a participant in the Dream Welterweight Grand Prix and lost his first-round matchup against Marius Zaromskis by unanimous decision at Dream.8. The fight is most famous for Zaromskis backflipping onto Ikemoto, almost getting caught in a leg lock in the process.

On November 8, 2010, he made his kickboxing debut against veteran fighter Yuya Yamamoto at K-1 World MAX 2010 Final, and lost via knockout in the first round.

Ikemoto lost his retirement fight to Japanese MMA legend Ryo Chonan on April 28, 2013, at Deep: Osaka Impact 2013.[2]
