Reigning Shooto strawweight champion Koha Minowa has signed with ONE Championship. The 20 year old is riding a four fight winning streak and won the title in January.

At Shooto 0126 Minowa faced Yohei Komaki in a bout that had the promotion’s vacant strawweight title on the line. He won by second round submission.

Minowa has been competing for Shooto since his amateur days. He holds a pro record of 10-2 and one of the fighters to beat him was former ONE Championship strawweight champion Yosuke Saruta.

Shooto is the world’s oldest MMA promotion. Last year a partnership with ONE Championship was announced and Minowa was offered a contract as part of this deal.

At ONE: ‘Century’ in Tokyo last October there were four ‘Shooto vs Pancrase’ fights. Saruta and Shoko Sato were both representing the former promotion and scored wins.
