He is defo awesome, check out his fight with Jacare (it's on Youtube), but he never competed in the Mundials. I think he won one of the other world champs once.

Very good replies, much appreciated. I suppose i wanted to know 2 catagories, Black belts currently competing, and teaching Black Belts.
All responses much appreciated
bronze in 2005 at the Mundials, 3 gold, a silver and a bronze from the CBJJO Copa Do Mundo and a gold and a silver at ADCC. He is good but not a true great in comparison to some of the others mentioned.

Guys like Shawn Williams, John Danaher, Draculinho, Ze Beleza, Renzo, Mario Sperry, Rodrigo Medeiros (the Carlson's one) and a host of others all have good reps. the most successful by team is probably Jacare/Gurgel at alliance. the most successful by elite students is probably Royler (Saulo & Xande).
such an awesome name
