I haven't rolled with too many famous guys, but for me I'd say Jean-Jaques was hands-down the most impressive roll in my experience. Technical. Fast. Strong. Steps ahead at any given moment.

Royler - Transitions were too smooth for me to even follow

Raphael Assuncao made me look like a bitch one time. Probably the fastest I've ever tapped in my life.

Lucas Lepri, Rafa Mende's, Leandro Lo, in that order. Buchecha as well but he never went hard cause I was a lot smaller.

Rickson. Ridiculous flow, didn't force anything but was obviously playing chess to my checkers.

Marco Barbosa (barbosinha). He's a small guy but the pressure he applied for the whole roll was unbelievable and his transitions were timeless.

Wont say his name because he is a huge pos and I dont want to give him any props but he was crazy good at bjj.

He let me take his back, put in my hooks, and apply a rnc and not only could I not tap him he just made me look like an idiot and submitted me super quick.

Best I've rolled with was Abu Dhabi world champion and UFC world champion, Ricco Rodriguez. The reason I rolled with him is because he was standing in front of me and I wanted to roll. Had he not been there, I might have rolled with Fabiano Iha instead.
