Shinichi Kojima (小島伸一?, Kojima Shinichi, born February 6, 1978) is a Japanese mixed martial artist. He has fought for most of his career in the Shooto organization.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Kojima was the Shooto Bantamweight Champion from 2006 until 2010, when an ACL injury in his right knee prevented him from defending the title in the mandatory time period.[2] Kojima had the most famous flyweight feud to date with former reigning champion Mamoru Yamaguchi.[3]

ONE Fighting Championship[edit]

Kojima made his debut at the organization with a submission win over Filipino Rey Docyogen at ONE FC: Return of Warriors at Putra Indoor Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on February 2. With the win, Kojima will get a shot at the ONE FC World Flyweight Title.[4]

Kojima was originally slated to fight former UFC vet and Shooto Bantamweight Champion Yasuhiro Urushitani for the inaugural ONE FC Flyweight Championship, but Urushitani was forced out of the bout due to injury and replaced with Andrew Leone.[5] However, just days before the event, an injury to Leone scrapped the bout from the card all together, after leaving Kojima without an opponent for the event.[6]
