Iron Nakamura began his MMA career entering the 2004 Amateur Shooto East Championship on July 19, 2004 which he won. 


He then followed his amateur success by making his MMA debut losing a unanimous decision to Yutaka Nishioka in Shooto on  February 6, 2005. He then lost his next fight too this time being stopped by TKO in 3:57 of the second round by Akiyo "Wicky" Nishiura.


Iron Nakamura's first professional came in his third fight when he was able to defeat Seigi Fujioka by unanimous decision.


For the early part of his career, he fought under his real name before adopting the "Iron" nickname on March 28, 2008 before he defeated Tenkei Oda by unanimous decision. 

 
He spent most of his career in Japan competing in Shooto where fought opponents such as Akiyo "Wicky" Nishiura, Shintaro Ishiwatari and Hatsu Hioki and then in DEEP where he fought opponents such as Tatsumitsu Wada, Masakazu Imanari, Takafumi Otsuka and Yoshiro Maeda defeating various of them such as Wada, Imanari and Maeda. 

 
Due to his continuous success in Japan, Iron Nakamura gained interest from Bellator who offered him a contract and signed him to compete in their bantamweight tournament.

However Iron Nakamura was eliminated in the next round of the bantamweight tournament as he lost by TKO in 1:58 of the third round to Brazilian Luis Alberto Nogueira.
