Is there such thing as elusive judo? We may get to find out if this video is any indication of where Japanese judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii is learning the MMA game from. He even pulls a nice little fireman’s carry on Lyoto Machida at 2:53 in. You know it’s slick when Machida is smiling even as he hits the mat.
Say this for Ishii, he’s taking his entrance into MMA very seriously and is getting some of the best training he can find. First he worked out with Randy Couture, and now Machida. Next maybe he goes to Greg Jackson’s and starts flipping people on their heads. Better soak it up while everyone still thinks of you as that harmless, nice Japanese guy from the Olympics.
After the jump, a study in how YouTube’s “Related Videos” feature gets weird in a hurry.
Okay, this makes sense, right? We go from Ishii and Machida to a Machida highlight video, and a decent one at that. The music choice is even oddly perfect in a way. But then this happened…
I don’t get it. Where did I go wrong?
