Dokonjonosuke Mishima : A New Arrival

At UFC 65-Bad Intentions, Japanese sensation Dokonjonosuke Mishima will be making his UFC debut against top contender for the UFC Lightweight title (at least according to Dana White) Joe Stevenson.

Mishima holds a professional MMA record of 17-4-2, with his four losses coming from Din Thomas (a loss that would be a no contest in many organizations), Takanori Gomi, Ralph Gracie and Yves Edwards.

Mishima hasn't fought for over a year, when he beat Chris Bennet at PRIDE-Bishido 9, but it is rumored that his skills have improved to a level far superior to any other point in his career (and that's saying something).

Mishima is noted for his formidable judo, excellent Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu and very unorthodox striking. While Mishima's career in PRIDE wasn't really the most successful, his career with DEEP, another great MMA organization, was incredible.

I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention that Stevenson is fighting an opponent the likes of which has probably never been seen before in the UFC, as well as fighter who has come a long way since his last fight in September of 2005. This is by no means a walk in the park.

I think they've tried to market the last few asian fighters that have tried there lucks in UFC. And its gone terrible for them.

Dean Lister Dominated his Fight at the last UFN.
Jon Fitch dominated his fight at UFC 64.

both those fights were marketed the same way with "unusual strikes" and "superb ground game".


Another Loss for a Pride fighter in the cage imo.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

That's what alot of people thought about Yushin Okami, but look how he did.

I'm just saying that when I saw Mishima fight in PRIDE he resembled a smaller combination of a Ryo Chonan and a Karo Parysian, and I'm not exagerating, this guy's submissions were sick.

I'm just saying, look at how high on the card Mishima is, and he's fighting a guy like Stevenson, who is easily third or fourth in line for the shot at Sherk.

Mishima Highlights

These are some videos I found of Mishima. Look for his weird takedowns and reversals and his sick submission defense:
