There were photos posted (from ADCC I think) from the Mundials of Rickson. He looked alot older to me than 40 and his weight looked to have dropped. I'm not trying to be disrespectful to him but he at least looks past his prime.
Then again what do I know, my prime came and went and I slept through it.

Rickson does pure BJJ but he also doesn't, he trains in striking as well, he probably crosstrains and just doesn't admit it. It's kinda like bjj.org mentions that Helio trained in Capoeira, and Rorion says he's only trained BJJ.

Migo, what is your point? There is a difference between working on slipping punches and clinching to make your jiu jitsu more effective. This is not the same as going and out training boxing.

"I think that as he stands he can beat the best like Silva."
If they fought in an open air stadium and Silva was struck by lightning mabye he would have a chance...
"He could also lose."
You're only one letter off here...
"I just hope to god that he doesn't fight some chump if he fights again."
That's probably a good idea, divine intervention is probably the only thing that's going to make him fight a quality opponent.

If all those people, that are great themselves, I have heard say he is great, I won't doubt them.

I Choke You, I could give less than a **** whether or not you agree with me. Were you not the guy who picked belfort over Liddel? Good choice. Why do you think Silva would beat Rickson? How would the fight go down? Let's have some reasoning.

You think Kimura is better than Rickson Gracie?? Kimura was only a Judo player and it took him 13 minutes to finish a 140lbs Helio. How long vould he stand against Rickson?

Kimura would whoop Rickson's ass. Maybe I should change my sig quote to, "'Kimura no mae ni, Kimura nai. Kimura no ato ni, Kimura nai.' Translation? 'Don't **** with Kimura'"
And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
