While it really doesn't matter and I'm sure there are elements of both Jujitsu and Judo in BJJ...isnt it funny how Jiu-Jitsu is really much more like Judo in terms of matwork (ne-waza)? It would make sense since Maeda was a kodokan judo master.

Aye, it is a bit of a blurry line that one.

Isn't it interesting that leg locks are so rare in the UFC? Giving their submission game similarities to Judo Newaza?

I wouldn't say they're that rare, but position is always the key, and you obviously don't wanna be near someones feet or legs during any kind of fight.
