    Famous defeats of Judoka?

    Hey all,

    I'm writing a piece on Judo history, and could do with an example of a well-known bout of a Judoka losing to, or at least impressively underperforming against someone from another style.

    It's not necessary that the other guy had no Judo background, only that he wasn't primarily a Judoka and that he mainly used elements of another style in this fight.

    Ideally if anyone can think of such a bout, it'd be handy if they could link to a video/written account of it (or at least of the result) so that I can easily refer to it.

    Thanks in advance,

    J

    Wait, in a MMA / NHB context or grappling? What do you mean by "impressively underperfoming?"

      This should fit into the 'Worlds Shortest Books' category.

        as per the gracie way, Helio choked out Kato. this was before helio's fight with kimura.

        yoshida's been unimpressive lately, while dong sik yoon is getting much better.... i think dong's first fight against sakuraba (turtles after being punched) was pretty underperforming. then again, it was a horrible, horrible mismatch.

            I find myself a little bit curious as to why you need this info?

              It's for the paper he's writing at the University of Anti-Judo BJJ Nutriding - Sao Paulo.

                Catch wrestler Ad Santel defeated several Judoka in the 1910's. He did lose to Tokuguro Ito (judoka) later.

                  Keith Mielke lost to Sam Adkins. That was epic.

                    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

                      Don't be silly... Judoka can't be defeated.

                      It is the will of Kimura.

                        Kimura? Isn't he the guy who got knocked out by Rikizodan?

                          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.

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