    Well Done to them both.

    Roger again using basic Jiu Jitsu in an absolutely unstoppable manner that the best in the world could not counter.
    Pass,mount,cross choke.Just like Rickson.

    Stupid Question but i'm curious.

    How Big is Braulio, he always seems little in photos but he must be big to fight at Heavy.

    6'3", 6'4" or so. He won his previous two titles at 88.3 (with the gi) I think, and this year at 94.3. He fought ADCC at under 98.

    Pretty big guy.

    Braulio is a big guy, easily 6"3 if not 6"4 and his strength is ridiculous, coupled with the technique [ functional strength ie knowing how and when to push and pull etc. ] makes his strength feel even more un real. Very difficult to cope with, when I used to train with him I was defending for 4 and half minutes, attacking for 30 seconds !!! This of course from starting in his guard, when it was started standing / wrestling or was mma related it was a lot different.

    Never trained or rolled with Roger but would imagine him to be exactly the same.

    Being multiple World champs, as these two are, is an amazing achievement. Well done.
    if you think its easy stop now

    no one achieved anything by doing nothing

    never argue with a fool

    if fighting is a pursuit rooted in pain, you will find the best teachers have often absorbed the most punishment themselves......and remained standing

    Hanging with Braulio ? Who said anything about hanging with Braulio ?

    What belt am I ? I was never a bjj competitor and rarely trained in the gi. Braulio gave me a blue belt many years ago. I was always no gi / mma.

    Sorry, but I dont understand the relevance / reasoning to your questions.

    And Marcello Garcia comes back to win middle. But does anybody know what happened in the final; it was 'decided' (???) after the other finalist was Alliance...?

    Sergio Moraes was the other finalist. I've heard they did "Paper, rock, scissors" for it, but I'd be more inclined to think it went to Marcelo on seniority.

    I think It was the only final not contested, every other one was fought for. I know Roger, Braulio and Romulo Barral said they'd fight if they met in the finals of the absolute (and Roger and Romulo did).
