A professional competitor since 2000, Tokoro has also formerly competed for Vale Tudo Japan, ZST, Shooto, Rings and K-1 Hero's. He is notable for holding the record for most weight divisions competed in by a professional MMA fighter, at seven, ranging from flyweight through to heavyweight.
Combat ApproachA skilled grappler, he works at high-speed on the ground and takes all risks with bold submission attempts, often leaving himself open to counterattacks in order to seek a chance to win. He favors shoot wrestling-inspired entries and leglocks, but is known for his brilliant positional work too. Despite this, he is also dangerous on his feet, counting on fast punches and jumping knees, as well as unorthodox attacks like spinning backfists and even spinning heel kicks.
