Biography

Tokyo native Ando has his martial arts origins in Judo, finishing in the top 8 in the All-Japan Judo Tournament as a high school student. His Judo roots led him first to Brazilian Jiujitsu, and from there to MMA. Ando now trains out of Wajutsu Keishukai, one of Japan’s best MMA gyms. Always seeking to perform to the best of his ability and proudly represent his team, he says that his goal is to show “the power and grit of Japanese MMA” in all of his fights. A Sengoku veteran, Ando now calls the Legend Ring his home and is seeking to prove himself on this stage. Considered to be one of Japan’s top young lightweight prospects, fight fans should keep a close eye on Ando as he makes his mark.
