He began martial arts training at the age of 3 when he took up Judo and then Shotokan Karate at 7, and eventually Shaolin Kung Fu at 16.[3] When he was a college student, he took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (in which he holds a brown belt[4]) and Muay Thai. In 2006, became the domestic amateur kickboxing champion, and the IKBO Thaiboxing World Champion in 2008. His grappling titles include 1 time UGC grappling European Champion, 2 times international German BJJ and grappling champion, and 2 times Swiss BJJ and grappling champion. He holds a Muay Thai record of 7-2, a boxing record of 1-0, and a BJJ and grappling record of 90-8.[5]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Enomoto took part in his first mixed martial arts bout at the S-1: European Championship Fight Night kickboxing event in February 2006, and won via unanimous decision over Vlajko Perovic. He then returned to the ring as a mixed martial artist two years later as he defeated Ireland's Danny Doherty with an armbar in Prague. After this, he was given the chance to fight for the Cage Fighters Championships' Welterweight title in England. He took on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Henrique Santana and won via unanimous decision.[7] Three months later, he recorded the first loss of his career as he was TKO'd by Tyler Stinson at Art of Fighting 3: Rumble at Robarts 3 in Florida, US.

Sengoku Raiden Championships[edit]

Enomoto made his promotional debut with the Sengoku Raiden Championship in June 2010 against the veteran Sanae Kikuta at Sengoku 13, where he won via submission by using a bulldog choke.

He then entered the 2010 Welterweight Grand Prix, and won his opening round fight at Sengoku 14, defeating Kenta Takagi via submission.[8] In the semi-finals, he was drawn against Taisuke Okuno who he faced at Sengoku 15. After three rounds in which Enomoto dominated the fight using boxing techniques, he was unanimously judged to be the winner.[9] He faced Keita Nakamura in the final at Sengoku: Soul of Fight on December 30, 2010 and submitted to a rear naked choke thereby becoming the runner up of the tournament.

М-1 Global[edit]

Enomoto stepped in as a last minute replacement for Rashid Magomedov in a title fight against M-1 Welterweight champion Shamil Zavurov. He took the fight on 8 days notice[10] and lost via unanimous decision.

After picking up two wins in the promotion, Enomoto was given another shot at the title. Enomoto faced Shamil Zavurov in a rematch at M-1 Challenge XXX. He was able to submit an exhausted Zavurov in the fifth round after a back and forth contest to become the new Welterweight champion.

Yasubey faced Rashid Magomedov on March 16, 2012 at M-1 Challenge 31. He lost the fight via unanimous decision (50–45, 49–47, 50–45).
