Yumiko Hotta (堀田 祐美子, Hotta Yumiko, born January 10, 1967) is a Japanese professional wrestler and mixed martial artist. Hotta was trained by and started her career in the All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (AJW) promotion in June 1985. She worked for the promotion until 2003, becoming a three-time WWWA World Single and WWWA World Tag Team Champion. In June 2003, Hotta took over the Hyper Visual Fighting Arsion promotion and renamed it Major Girl's Fighting AtoZ. Under Hotta's leadership, the promotion lasted only three years, before folding in 2006, after which Hotta became a freelancer. In January 2011, Hotta joined the new Universal Woman's Pro Wrestling Reina promotion, but just sixteen months later she announced that the promotion was folding. Afterwards, she affiliated herself with the World Woman Pro-Wrestling Diana promotion, becoming the leader of the villainous Bousou-gun stable. She resigned from Diana in July 2016 to once again become a freelancer. Since 1995, Hotta has also fought several mixed martial arts matches, mostly at events put together by joshi puroresu promotions.

With a sports background in karate, specifically in the Kyokushin kaikan style, Hotta was trained in professional wrestling at the All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (AJW) dojo. She made her debut on June 5, 1985, teaming with Megumi Nakamae in a tag team match, where they faced Fumie Kanzaki and Hisako Uno. Hotta gained attention early on for her unorthodox wrestling style. During her second year in AJW, Hotta was made the tag team partner of popular wrestler Chigusa Nagayo. On October 10, 1986, Hotta and Nagayo won the 1986 Tag League the Best tournament. She won her first title on April 15, 1987, when she and Hisako Uno defeated Judy Martin and Leilani Kai to win the vacant WWWA World Tag Team Championship. They would lose the title just twelve days later to the Red Typhoons (Kazue Nagahori and Yumi Ogura). The following year, Hotta formed the Fire Jets tag team with Mitsuko Nishiwaki and together the two went on to become two-time WWWA World Tag Team Champions during the late 80s. On September 5, 1993, Hotta and Takako Inoue defeated Akira Hokuto, the former Hisako Uno, and Suzuka Minami to win the vacant UWA World Women's Tag Team Championship, which they would hold for the next seven months. In mid-1994, Hotta won the annual Japan Grand Prix.

Hotta won her first singles title on September 24, 1995, when she defeated Toshiyo Yamada for the All Pacific Championship. She vacated the title in mid-1996 to concentrate on chasing AJW's top singles title, the WWWA World Single Championship, as well as an upcoming vale tudo fight. Having established herself in legit competition, Hotta was on August 20, 1997, booked to defeat Kyoko Inoue at the Nippon Budokan for the WWWA World Single Championship. During the next two years, Hotta went on to win the title two more times. In the late 90s, AJW began having financial issues, which led to a mass exodus of talent from the promotion; Hotta, however, remained loyal to the promotion, becoming a locker room leader of sorts. However, on May 11, 2003, Hotta announced that she also was quitting the dying promotion.
