Okay I Know I'm two months behind on this but I just saw the video last night.
Why was there a draw between Royce and Yoshida?
Posted On:3/05/2004 4:31pm
Because the rules they agreed on stated that there would be no judges' decision. (For some reason I guess Royce didn't trust Pride officials? :) )
There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

I think that the contract stipulated that the fight could only be won by submission or knockout.

yeah I just went out and grabbed a grappling mag and that's what it said thanks.

I read an interview with Royce and he said that he kicked the inside of his leg. It looked strait up the middle to me. I actually thought that it might have been intentional at first. What do you guys think? (sorry, this has probably been discussed to death)

To me, it looked like he was aiming for the inside of the leg, but caught him right up the middle instead. I say it was accidental. But there's no way we could ever know the truth for sure, unless Royce suddenly admits he did it on purpose.

I didn't see the video (damn, where do you get things like that in Holland? The only MA we have on tv is some boxing and K-1 once every 2 weeks), but I've read that there would indead be no ref stoppage. Same as their first fight by the way, but that has certainly been discussed to death.
I think it's too bad that Royce fought without a gi. He should just stay with his BJJ play like he did in the UFC.
Royce also likes to fight without time limits he said, in which case he propably would have won by the way.

what is it about royce,,,, there always has to be some kind of controversy :)

True. That's too bad though, I kinda like the guy and enjoyed his fights. And I don't even have a grappling background...

I though it was great to see Royce take off his gee. He said it was advice from Rickson and Royler.
