Hiromitsu Kanehara (金原弘光, Kanehara Hiromitsu, (born October 5, 1970 in Owariasahi, Aichi)) is a Japanese mixed martial artist of Korean descent who competes in the Light Heavyweight division.[1]

Although starting as a professional wrestler in 1991, Kanehara did not have much success as such, and eventually abandoned professional wrestling when his then-home circuit, Fighting Network RINGS, abandoned the discipline in the late 1990s. Unlike most shoot-style comrades such as Masayuki Naruse, Wataru Sakata, and Minoru Suzuki, who returned to regular puroresu, Kanehara only has done sporadic appearances.
