    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.

    Karo and Yoshida already did that homie. Also fedor, while I'm sure is well versed in judo, was the first to put sambo on display and show its right up there with other MA. Unless you count oleg but I think fedor brought more attention to it.

    I'll just leave these here, and they are not the only ones. Ronda didn't even come close to bringing Judo to the UFC.

    Karo and Yoshida had some great throws and subs.

    Hidehiko Yoshida is as high level as it gets. When will we ever see another Olympic judo gold medalist in MMA again? He was able to hang with the very best LHWs and HWs with nothing but Judo.

    It's revisionist history to say that Ronda brought Judo to UFC/MMA. She gets the most recognition for obvious reasons, but she was hardly the first to use it effectively.

    One of the first fights that you could look at as MMA had Gene LeBell against Milo Savage.

    Funny, if I mention those guys instead, there will always be guys who's like "well they haven't had that much success in MMA so they count"

    but if I don't, then there will be always....

    Yoshida is a real deal, but Ishii's career is pretty disappointing, and Nakamura....well....I did look forward to Machida vs Nakamura fight...wasn't so bad..
