    Actually he's also got a black belt in BJJ. There's only a handful of guys who've got both olympic judo and BJJ black belts, he's one of them (Ray Stevens of England, who got a silver in judo in the '92 olympics, just got his BJJ black belt as well, from Roger Gracie).

    rhadi is a monster but also technical, he does not get enough credit for his technical side

    Crushing people with that high crotch. Don't know what it's called in judo, but I've never seen a judo guy shoot the high-c like that, over and over.

    Te Guruma in judo. Rhadi does it very well, but there are a few others who use it a lot as well. Tends to be used more in the heavier weights than the light weights.

    Ferguson is a very technical fighter by the way, there's a lot of throws he can do extremely cleanly. It'd be pretty amazing to have him as a trainer (which is what he does now).

    That's how you take people down - you fucking sell out. I love watching guys who truly understand that executing a technique without full commitment to it is a good way to get your ass kicked. I'm going to watch this again before class tomorrow - I'm planning on doing a fair amount of standup grappling for the first time in way too long to get ready for some competitions.
