And I can't say I disagree with him.  I know AJ has a Chael Sonnen thing going on but he makes a great point.  Gordon Ryan and a lot of the other American no-gi grapplers get so much push from Rogan and Eddie Bravo, but there are a ton of (mostly Brazilian) guys that have been at the top of the grappling game, gi and no gi, for a very long time only going against top-tier competition.

 

Case in point, Felipe Pena.  He's beaten Gordon Ryan twice, submitting him once.  Gordon did sub some great guys at ADCC but Pena subbed freakin Buchecha before beating Gordon.  Cyborg, Keenan, Romulo, etc. can't hold a candle to Buchecha's accomplishments.  

 

 

Gordon and guys like him are amazing, but remember that there are a ton of guys out there who are on par with him but don't get hype behind them from EBI/Flograpping.

It’s not about what is best, it’s about what’s hot.

So this guy got his feelings hurt because Joe and Eddie are not talking about him?

Agazarm always seems to piss people off, even if he has some merit to his point.

That might be part of it.  I imagine if you asked him he would say its because he's teammates with Pena, Gabriel Arges, Najmi, etc.

Well, they wouldn't have been talking about him anyway, because A.J is nowhere close to being the best anything, in grappling. Felipe Pena and Buchecha, are both better than Gordon Ryan and Garry Tonon.

So you can't be a fan and enjoy those couple of guys style etc over others. We now have to talk about everyone that grapples to not hurt their feelings?

We do not know with any certainty that Buchecha is better that Gordon. Just Pena.

Eddie would respond but he’s got some Flat Earth papers to finish.

Isn’t it kind of joe boosting danaher and 10th planet guys? Joe always boosts his friends.

he does it more in comedy, where he acts like guys like tony hinchcliffe are on the same level as real top comedians ..... and it got him a terrible Netflix special

Really?  They both won ADCC.  Gordon is only 10 world championships behind him!

Who cares what AJ Agazarm thinks? Why does this guy keep getting spots on all these comps?
