The Best Judo Throws ever seen in MMA.

Judo has a bad rep when it comes to MMA. It always seems to play second fiddle to BJJ when it comers to the martial art that people want to train in to increase their ability in self defence and MMA. However Judo has been a major part of MMA for years and its athletes have enjoyed good levels of success in MMA.

Did you know that Judo players have:

  • Held a UFC World Title (Ronda Rousey)
  • Won a UFC Tournament (Oleg Taktarov UFC 6)
  • Defeated not one but three UFC Champions   (athletes who either were or would be champions) Hidehiko Yoshida Defeated Don  Frye and Royce Gracie, Karo Parysian Defeated Matt Serra
  • Reached the semi finals of not one but two UFC Tournament’s(Remco Pardoel UFC 2, Brian Johnston UFC 10)
  • Defeated in the UFC Nick Diaz, a BJJ black belt and MMA champion(Karo Parysian)
  • Defeated 3rd Degree BJJ Black Belt and ADCC Silver medallists (karo Parysian win over Matt Serra)
  • Finalist of the The Ultimate Fighter Competition (manny gamburyan)
