Is he a BJJ or Judo guy?

Judo... there was some sort of controversy about him cheating during a big judo competition (don't know at what level, maybe Japanese championships or something)...

I'm sure someone else on here can elaborate

He was wearing a gi that had been washed with a paticular kind of detergent that made it slippery, and a few opponents complained. They made him change into another gi and he lost the next match. Thats why the Sakuraba fight was so sketchy, because he'd done something similar before.

despite the cheating alligations i still think hes top 10 in the MW division and would have beat Misaki without the soccor kick incident

Yeah to extend what you said, he was slaughtering Saku and eventually stopped him with Ground and Pound and after the Fight Saku complained and they found out he greased his legs and he wasn't awarded the Win.
