He was the runner up of the DREAM 2009 Featherweight Grand Prix,losing to Bibiano Fernandes by split decision. He avenged this loss at Dynamite!! 2010 to become the new champion. His main style of fighting is considered to be street fighting due to his experience fighting on the street hence he is known as the "Streetfight Bancho".

 

Takaya made his professional debut in the Shooto organization in a fight against Hayate Usul in 2003. After a 9-4-1 record in Shooto, Hero's, and Cage Force including bouts against top mixed martial artists like Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez, Genki Sudo, and former Hero's Middleweight Champion Gesias Cavalcante.

Takaya then faced former DREAM Lightweight Champion Joachim Hansen, knocking Hansen out in the first round. On December 31, 2010, Takaya rematched and defeated Bibiano Fernandes via unanimous decision and became the DREAM Featherweight Champion. He then defended his title first against Kazuyuki Miyata and then against Takeshi Inoue. On December 31, 2012 at DREAM 18, Takaya fought Georgi Karakhanyan in a non-title bout where Takaya lost via split decision.

His second win of the year was over Ryogo Takahashi at Vale Tudo Japan: VTJ 6th, on October 4, 2014. He won the fight via knockout.
