Roger gracie. My friend armbarred him. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

this was a one off instructional class and roger let him do it for a nice photo at the end. Roger could rape everyone in that class at once if he so desired. But my friend still tells everyone he had roger Gracie in an arm bar haha

Renzo.

The most surprising was Falaniko Vitale. It was at GU. We touched hands and BOOM I had him in a sunk heel hook and I was like "HOLY F@$% I HAVE FALANIKO VITALE IN A HEEL HOOK!!?!" Then it was gone in a scramble. Then I sunk a knee bar. Then that too was gone. It was only at that moment I realized he was feeding me sunk subs, just so he didn't get too bored.

Rickson in the 90's. He was nice enough to roll with me with one hand in his belt. Still crushed me without almost no effort.

Leonardo Nogeuria between his world championship wins. It was cool, he was super nice, but I still felt like I was playing a damn bongo solo I was tapping so much.

Nino Schembri in his prime. I don’t know shit but he seemed way smoother than Relson and Ralph.

Whambo - 

Mario Esfiha


kills me every time I roll with him but he is soooo big (and good).  

my answer is Andre Galvao.  Did some private training with him several years ago when I first got my black belt.   Never felt so helpless in my life.

Pete Sell the head BJJ coach at LongoAndWeidman MMA here on Long Island is probably the best known. Lots of guys at LAW, Serra, Renzo’s Brooklyn location or Gracie Barra are grappling beasts.

In Judo I’ve done randori with Jimmy Pedro and Jason Morris.
