Miyata made his MMA debut at Rumble on the Rock 6 in 2004, against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Royler Gracie, where despite dominating the majority of the fight he was caught by submission due to a triangle choke in the second round. Miyata continued his career by fighting in the Japanese promotion K-1 Hero's where he held notable wins over Kultar Gill and Ian James Schaffa.
