Great Marcio Cruz article on Sherdog.

Video interviews with Maurice Smith & Travis Wiuff.

Fabio Silva & Fabricio Werdum training video.

#4: Special Judogi

Yoshida says that he will wear a special judogi that is lighter than normal. His stamina won’t run out as quickly and he can move better. The gi put him in a disadvantage against Barnett, but he still wants to wear one because of his fans.

    Yoshida’s gi should not disadvantage him in any way against Maurice.

    Depends on if he will stand up with Maurice as he has hinted at beforehand. If he is smart and goes for throws it shouldn’t make a difference.
