Takeya Mizugaki started learning Kendo until the end of high school and decided to try something fresh upon entering university. This was the stage in life when he embraced MMA, having followed the sport since his teenage years on PRIDE and Shooto.
Takeya is the only Asian to date to win five UFC matches in a row and his experience at the highest level of the sport will be a formidable challenge to China’s equally experienced and tough The Ultimate Fighter: China’s featherweight champion, Ning Guangyou. Predominately a striker with wicked punching skills and power, Takeya can also hold his own on the ground with his judo skills. This clash of seasoned professionals with evenly matched skills will be unpredictable as it is thrilling and their match is sure to set the crowd in Beijing roaring with delight.
