Mishima is known for his charisma and emphasis on entertainment as well as competition. He typically enters the arena in an outlandish fashion, such as in his UFC debut, where he sported a bathrobe and devil mask while clutching a Snoopy stuffed animal.
On February 12, 2005, Mishima was victorious against fellow DEEP veteran Tomomi Iwama becoming the first lightweight (155 lb) champion of the organisation. However, Mishima didn't defend his belt and returned it one year later.
Mishima had four fights in PRIDE, winning over Charles Bennett and Marcus Aurélio and losing to Yves Edwards and Ralph Gracie. His final appearance with the company was in the reserve fight of PRIDE Bushido 9 on September 25, 2005, where he defeated fellow alternate Charles Bennett with an ankle lock.
On November 18, 2006, Mishima made his debut in the U.S. at UFC 65. Joe Stevenson, the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 2 who had just moved down to the lightweight division (155 lb), defeated Mishima in the first round by a guillotine choke.
On May 19, 2008, Mishima dropped to featherweight (145 lb) to fight Masakazu Imanari. Mishima won by unanimous decision, becoming the DEEP featherweight champion. He also became the first man to capture the DEEP belt in two different divisions.
