If you want to see another 'effectively weird' fighter, go to http://www.zst.jp/english/media/movie/00.html and download the tag-team fight. The guy with the insane shoot/flying leg-lock/guard pull is a new up-and-comer in the 155lb division named Masakazu Imanari.
The guy tapped Jorge Gurgel, a BJJ black belt, in under a minute with a heel hook, catching the leg from a flying knee in the first couple of seconds. He's nuts.
BTW: ZST is basically Rings King of Kings rules. No GnP to the head.

Thanks for the links guys.
I DO love Genki Sudo.....
I want to be entertained, yet see a good match.
Those fight alike clones are annoying me.
It has turned some people off from MMA.

Style: Jacksons Gaidojitsu
Sudo is one of my all time favorite fighters hands down. His antincs inside and outside the ring are always great.
I had seen clips from that grappling tourney, seeing all his matches was pretty damn impressive. I wonder if he can get some Pride Bushido action and get more exposure.
I ended up checking out his website and again was impressed with how humble and nice the guy seems to be. A damn impressive fighter.

Style: Punch & Kick
Is it just me or does Japan have a habit of producing more "weirdo" fighters than the rest of the world (in kickboxing and MMA at least)? is it a marketing thing over there?
Punches in bunches and kicks kicks kicks!

Damn you want to talk about unorthodox. How many people has Roy Jones Jr. KTFO with his ghetto punches while his other hand was at his waist?

Style: panatukan, bjj newb.
A great example of his fight against Oxley in the King of Pancrase fight where he under hooks both of oxleys legs and spins him around a few times, which led him to very efficient achilles lock.

Stold -- Ludwig didnt get anything done in the Sudo fight until the bogus ref standup. Even with the bogus standup, Sudo outpointed Ludwig. Sudo got robbed, Ludwig got schooled.
Even the UFC saw the unfairness of that standup and changed the rules, to restart in the same position after a ref stop. And Sudo is back in the next one.
Genki is a virtuoso, and even more entertaining than Sak, who is another. And he is almost as bizarre in grappling matches as what you saw. But whatever strange stance he takes, he seems ready to convert it into an mma move. Maybe he is a new style---the fighter/dancer
