If a guy adapts his judo to no-gi, he will fare better than his greco counterpart, IMO. The adaptation is the biggest issue.
Like he said limited not removed.

About how I feel, funny thing is Randy is known for greco and the move he used against James Toney is taught in judo. Maybe there is a greco version as well.

Its not the be all end all in MMA but its very rare to watch a MMA fight and not see judo used.

On the street though no art is better for self defense.
