It's not as simple as him 'starting' ADCC. He was involved in getting it running, and he was part of Sheikh Zayed's inspiration for starting the competition.
Matt Hume is one of those guys that everyone seems to have a really deep respect for. His leglocks are supposed to be really amazing and I'm sure his technical knowledge is terrific.
He's not really that much of a competitor anymore, though. And in his prime I'd never locate him in the ranks of a lot of the guys that have been mentioned in this thread. I don't think of him like a Roger Gracie or a Marcelo Garcia type figure. I think of him more like Pat Miletich; he was one of the best fighters in the world, but his major contribution is in terms of his coaching.
