Judo in the WEC

with one comment

Last night’s 170 lb title fight had some of the most beautiful judo throws I’ve ever seen in MMA. We call those “high amplitude” throws: when the legs of the guy getting thrown describe a big arc.

Miura ultimately lost to Condit, but the outcome might have been different if they had been fighting in a parking lot 🙂

Note to physicists: WEC = World Extreme Cagefighting, a sister promotion to the UFC, not Weak Energy Condition.
