Style: Muay Thai & BJJ
Carlos Gracie jr is a brasilian greco-roman as well as bjj champion. I think both renzo and royler are judo BB's.

Judo - the SPORTIVE art - isn't particularly suited for MMA. Sportive Judo is all about the Gi, and while a strong Judoka has to be respected anyway, he does not train for the same kind of game.
Now, if you take one of the old judo schools... things do change.

There's not that many Judo practitioners in the UFC nor Jiu-Jitsu(Japanese Style) but yeah some fighters took a previous art and then crosstrained with another.

How did you come to the conclusion they trained in other arts then?
Because Royce said in an interview before his fight with Yocheata that it wasn't BJJ vs. Judo that he liked Judo and trained in it as a child.
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I expect to see a lot more Judo people coming out in the coming years. There are a lot of people that just stop being enamoured with it and leave, the more rules they put in, the less I really care. There is starting to be a growth in people doing no-gi judo.

Yeah, I too wanted to see more practitioners of other arts also, There were some Judo practitioners but they didn't competed long enough so there MMA fighting record was not that great. Judo is becoming like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but in BJJ they have gi's but in MMA competitions they use those Vale Tudo shorts which is popular in the MMA and the only fighter I know that fights in a gi would be Royce Gracie.

People are cross-training that much these days that it you can conclude little of a styles worth just by a fighters' style as named in his record. What does it matter if a judo guy enters the UFC? Like he didn't learn some BJJ and striking too...

What other arts? Where did you find this? I've never heard of this.
time to get OWNED in portuguese by magapi gracie family friend (it says rolls took other arts and introduced their techniques ), translate it if you dont believe
"Rolls Gracie "Esse a gente não pode esquecer"
O Jiu-jitsu precisava de um campeão com grande técnica, carisma, liderança para influenciar e orientar a geração mais jovem de praticantes de artes marciais. Em Rolls Gracie, o jiu-jitsu achou este líder. O menino com o nome estranho, começou na Rua São Bolivar 14, em Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, próximo ao Teatro Roxy, um esforço consciente para ser o inovador e peça fundamental para a transição do jiu-jitsu. Ele introduziu educação física em seu programa de treinamento conjuntamente com técnicas de outras artes marciais. Ele promoveu competições jiu-jitsu mas ainda apelou para a juventude, que popularizasse este esporte. participando. Ele se tornou o líder de centenas de pessoas jovens da Zona Sul do Rio.
Não contente com o que já havia aprendido sobre técnicas de lutas marciais, ele viajou o mundo procurando mais conhecimentos, compartilhando seu estilo, e competindo contra lutadores sambô nas regras de seus oponentes. Onde quer que Rolls tenha ido, impressionou todo mundo com sua versatilidade, rapidez e força; pesando 71Kg, ele dava saltos poderosos, chutes e socos, algo nunca visto antes num lutador de jiu-jitsu. Weighing somente 160 libras, ele desempenhou saltos poderosos, chutes, e socos; algo nunca visto num lutador de jiu-jitsu."
SO THEY CROSS TRAINED A LOT TOO.

about royce and hkd
"Thanks to Royler for coming up with this strategy, and for pushing me, keeping me going.
Nono, for teaching me about the stand-up world. I totally threw him (Yoshida) off with the strategy Nono and Royler put together."
"Royce Gracie - I have a French guy. His name is Nono and he's based in LA. He runs a Hapkido school, but he's adapted training around me to suit my needs. Like I said before, I'm not going to stand and exchange firepower. It's more like a couple of hits to come in or a couple of kicks to come out. So he's modified a style of Hapkido, Boxing and Kick Boxing to suit my style. Actually, because I'm not fighting right now he's teaching me some stick fighting."
and NO I AM NOT ASIA WITH ANOTHER ACCOUNT
