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.
