Mitsuhiro Ishida (石田光洋, born December 29, 1978) is a retired Japanese mixed martial artist who has competed in Shooto, Strikeforce, PRIDE, DREAM, and DEEP. A professional competitor since 2001, Ishida also participated in the Yarennoka event in the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
Mixed martial arts career
Ishida's professional debut was on July 6, 2001 at Shooto: To the Top 6 against Daisuke Sugie where he lost via unanimous decision. He then went on to win his next four fights. On February 17, 2006 he defeated Kenichiro Togashi to become the Shooto Pacific Rim Welterweight Champion.
At PRIDE Shockwave 2006 he lost to Takanori Gomi in a non-title fight on December 31, 2006, his first defeat in that organization. As a result of the loss to Gomi, he was unable to defend his Shooto Pacific Rim Welterweight Championship at a mandatory title defense in February 2007.
On March 15, 2008, Ishida competed in the opening round of the DREAM Lightweight Grand Prix, defeating Korean judoka Jung Bu-Kyung. He proceeded to lose to Caol Uno in the quarter-finals at DREAM 3 via rear- naked choke submission.
On July 6, 2012 Ishida announced that he has retired from mixed martial arts competition.
