Sadly BJJ hasn't shown the same dominance as it used to, its a beautiful art, but it seems that a combination of wrestling and good striking is the most dominant form now.
Lets just say that there will never be a title holder that is mainly a BJJ fighter. The gap back in the day when Royce fought used to be enormous. Fighters train in everything now, and wrestlers know how to position themselves to avoid a sub.

Would you say BJ's BJJ compliments his boxing or vice-versa?

At any rate, I'd be sick if I was Branch, Harris is probably one of the toughest prospects you could fight stylistically. It's going to take a good, rangy striker to post problems for him stylistically. Gerald doesn't have crisp strikes, but he's got power and athleticism and takedown defense. I'd favor him over Branch.
BJ Penn isnt the right example to my statement, I mean people like Maia, who have bad striking and depend all upon their BJJ skills.

Maia who is considered one of the best BJJ fighters, will never be a champion.
