Can't argue with that.

Sakuraba was the man, I just wish he'd retire cos it hurts to watch him right now.

For MMA Sakuraba sounds about right at being the best all time** Fedor, Big Nog for all the obvious reasons******** A lttle GSP as well****** I would say Randy but not known for submission skills******

got to mention Matt Hughes, well rounded ground skills; subs & sub def, control, great shot and sprawl******

Hughes is ridiculously good on the ground, especially on top** He does a great job passing guard, and constantly goes for stuff** He dominated solid ground fighters like Newton and Sakurai**

Yeah Hughes' jitz from the top is crazily good but he's awful off his back so that keeps him off of this list IMO**

You literaly stole my post** If I had to order them then
1** Garcia
2** Maia
3** Drysdale
4** Jacare
5** Roger Gracie

BUT people forget the infomous Rickson name** I actually finally got to see some of his old rolling videos, and that dude is a monster** I think in his hay day he may have been better then all of these guys, now though I have no idea because he doesn't roll anymore**

Well he has beaten both Ribeiro and Drysdale pretty recently and has several Gi and no Gi world-, brazilian- and US -championships. So yeah I would toss him into the top 5 mix somewere in pure BJJ list, he hasn't proven his mma-bjj skills enough yet though. ^^
