    Judo, baby! Yeah!
    Yuki Nakai!

    Fucking Legend!

    I've been telling anyone and everyone who cared to listen, that Nakai was the star of that tournament! Vindication! Nice one HM! Very nice!

    I recall a documentary, at least I think it was a documentary, about the results of that Vale tudo tournament. Rickson was a talking head on it and he commented about that fight. The documentary could've been about Nakai, but I'm not sure. It was over 10 years ago, when I saw it and I started watching it, halfway through.
    If anyone has any idea, what I'm talking about, I'd be grateful if you filled in the blanks.

    I remember some of these.

    Mario Sperry vs. Igor Zinoviev - I remember watching that fight and thought of it when I started reading this thread and am glad to see it appeared. That russian was tough as nails. You could see Sperry's frustration as Zinoviev did everything you shouldn't do and found a way to make it work. He gave up his back but found a way to wiggle out. Sperry had him in full mount at one stage and tried just raining punches down on him. Zinoviev just punched him back from the bottom until Sperry had to stop and try something else.

    Gracie vs Severn - Yup, first time I ever saw a triangle choke. Winning from your back with a submission - awesome.

    Smith vs Conan - Great fight. Smith just kept hammering Conan's leg with roundhouse after roundhouse until Conan started to drop his hand to block it, then suddenly Smith went high and BAM!
