It was one of the coolest thing in MMA to watch UFC 1 and see some skinny guy come out a tourney winner which sort of opened the BJJ era in MMA, unless I am mistaken and it started much earlier in Shooto or something. Of course, wrestling era is pretty evident not long after earlier UFCS, and there has been countless wrestlers who has been succesful in MMA, as well as some not as succesful relative to their wrestling career or did not have a long career in this sports. Then, it was also pretty cool to see Machida become a champion and see him proclaim that Karate is back and for a while it seemed like it will be Machida Karate era for a bit until Shogun came back from the grave in his prime form. For Judo, Rousey was more than likely the most hyped individual in the history of human mankind, but I do think the rematch is still a toss up if Rousey gets his shit together, if Holm doesn't lose against Tate, which very well could happen. It's pretty disgusting how people jump ship at the snap of the fingers though and the hype train just starts anew at the speed of light at the expense of another one. But maybe, Fedor did and do represent Judo as well as Royce does for BJJ or Machida for Karate. After all, when you are in Olympic team for sports and come pretty close to making the team for that olympic sports, you must be pretty good in it.
