Don't be silly... Judoka can't be defeated.
It is the will of Kimura.

The best example I can think of is Royce Gracie Vs. Hidehiko Yoshida from Shockwave 2003, in what was billed as a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Vs. Judo match. This was a big matchup of two world class grapplers, and was expecially relevant since their first bout ended in so much controversy. Yoshida didn't look the greatest during the fight, and Royce dominated the positioning and strikes on the ground. It was ruled a draw since it was a special rules fight with no judges scoring, but Yoshida clearly took the most punishment. This domination was expecially notable since Yoshida outweighs Gracie by 50 pounds.

Er... how 'bout that old episode of Everybody Loves Rickson where Rickson goes to Japan and basically owns the hell out of all of 'em and everybody is all like "Brazil has muuuuch honor." Did you guys see that one?
Yeah, that was sweet."You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."

Pawel Nastula lost against Nog in his first MMA fight. Also lost to Barnett and Aleks.

Didn't BJ Penn beat up a bunch of Judo black belts for fun?

See my article on the "Merikan" boxing vs. judo matches of the early 1900s - http://www.bullshido.org/Merikan . There are records of boxers winning vs. judoka in these bouts, but it's hard to tell from the historical record whether these fights were works or shoot.
The second volume of the Bartitsu Compendium - http://www.lulu.com/content/3115394 - includes a large section on these types of contests.
