Itsuki Hirata has been training with Shinya Aoki to prepare for her Grand Prix semi final bout with Ritu Phogat. The two are set to face off at ONE: ‘NextGen’ next month.

ONE Championship shared a video of the two fighters training together:

Itsuki was going out with Erson Yamamoto. But rumour has it that the relationship is over and it remains to be seen whether the atomweight star will continue to train at Krazy Bee.

In the meantime she appears to be working hard on her takedowns and as, trainers and training partners go, Itsuki could do a lot worse than multiple time MMA champion Shinya Aoki!
