Ronda Rousey, unlike many others from Judo has been able to effectively translate her Judo skills to mma. She also has a complete game in Judo, as opposed to just strong clinch game and throws. Which other Judo players do you think would make strong mma fighters? Some that come to mind - Teddy Riner (France) - this guy looks like a HW Jon Jones if he could obviously develop striking - Illias Illiadis (Greece) - Has great standing and ground skills. Seems like he would be able to translate his skill to non gi grappling. - Ole Bischof (Germany) - Another really strong Judoka in both Tachi, and Ne Waza, with good submissions, and excellent transitions. More offensive than those Judokas who are just trying to avoid action and win on a technicality. - Kayla Harrison (USA) - A judo player who has been training since her youth like Ronda, and for whom techniques are like second nature. - Marti Malloy (USA) Obviously some Judoka's have gone to mma and really failed, Makoto Takimoto, Pawel Nastula, Michihiro Omigawa, and then some who weren't great but okay Satoshi Ishii, Naoya Ogawa, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Karo Parisyan Still I wonder if anyone knows whether some of the top Judo players are still considering mma. Obviously it's a lot different, but someone who can utilize mastery of technique like Rousey could potentially put that to effect in mma.
