Mizugaki (21-11-2) joins the ACB roster having fought in the UFC/WEC since 2009. From 2012 to 2014, Mizugaki went on one of the most impressive streaks of his career. After five-straight wins over names that include Francisco Rivera and Bryan Caraway, Takeya Mizugaki got the biggest fight of his career when he took on former champion Dominick Cruz.

After a quick KO loss to Cruz, Mizugaki went on to lose yet again. This time at the hands of an arm-triangle choke courtesy of Aljamain Sterling. After a big win over George Roop in Japan, Mizugaki lost two-straight again. Both via first round knockout against Cody Garbrandt and Eddie Wineland.

He will enter the ACB cage hoping to get a much-needed win under his belt. When, where, or who he will make his debut against have not been announced.

Though Russian-based, ACB has recently started to enter other markets. Including; Poland, the UK, and the US.
