You will still have stubborn folk out there that will disagree all day for some reason. Hes the michael Jordan of BJJ the BabeRuth of BJJ or what other analogies you would like to make. Simply put hes the shiznit of BJJ. Simply second to know hands down.

Hell yeah he is, gotta love the guy. He took on all challengers and beat some great fighters.

Long live Rickson Gracie, the manliest man I know. The guy took out Takada twice. He's the only guy to do that. Takada beat Mark Coleman, you know. Yep, tapped him with a leg-lock. Rickson also beat a one-eyed Yuki Nakai, who is the best BJJ trainer today. He also beat Yoshihisa Yamamoto. It took him a while, but he still beat him.

I buddy of mine trained with him for years in Brazil and said the guy was a fricken animal. So unbelievably strong. He also said he would train with Royce and his siblings with one are behind his back to make it fair.

I don't really like it when people compare fighters of the past and how they would handle the ring in the present day. Royce was an excellent fighter in his day, he just didn't evolve that much with the sport. He relied too much on his Jitz and didn't train for anything else. He did what he had to do when the sport began, and without Royce, it's fair to say that the modern day MMA scene would still be in it's infancy today.

Funaki was really Gracie's only legit competition. I don't remember much about the fight, but Rickson basically dry humped his leg to get the takedown.

Severn has some of the most BORING fights ever. Hes pretty talented though.

to answer the question i would have to go with Tank Abbott although ive never considered him as a "legend" though, hes more of a "well known " fighter imo

and whos saying Ken Shamrock ?!?! hes is very much a legend, just should have stopped fighting a long time ago... thats all


Kovalev - Golovkin
