Man, Marcelo is a gangster. If he is able to translate his game to MMA, he'll win the tournament.

At this point, no one short of Xande, Drysdale and Roger (who are all around 230 or up) can beat Marcelo. I know Jacare did a while back, but if they rolled at ADCC in 2009, I think Marcelo would take it.

Still, it's a great point.

Not only is Marcelo the best lightweight in the world. He's one of the best grappers in the world at any weight class. He's top four or five on any list (top three on mine), regardless of weight. It's pretty scary.

I think he would be fine against Xande in ADCC still. But I think Jacare would still give him problems which is why I put the 185 limit.

Marcelo IMO is the best outside of Roger,Drysdale and Jacare in No-Gi grappling.

This. I'd also take Jacare.

Nah Terere can beat him, in fact he did it twice.

Well Terere kinda dissapeared from the jits scene... he was supposedly getting into lots of trouble, and had some sort of mental illness or something. He was reported as making a comeback though, here's the article: Click

Here's a good thread about him on Sherdog also: Click

Yeah, that's valid. I'd really like to see that Marcelinho vs. Jacare match again.

Terere has sort of disappeared. He had Marcelo's number, but it's been a while for Terere.

Yeah but there was recently an article on tatame, that I can't find, that talked about Terere and pretty much they said he wasn't coming back to BJJ.
