We've all rolled with super athletic/strong guys who are just tough to deal with on the mat with li.ited knowledge.I'm mot saying he'd be a world champ or competition level, but I'm sure he'd give your every day purple belt who weighs 180ish.... lots of probs once he learns the basics... esp without the gi.

and Helio was 6ft so I never understood why he was always described as being small and weak.

Ryron is probably 6'1" 195 lbs. Rener is a little bit taller, 6'4" I would guess though I might be off. During the belt promotions last Saturday when Rener was explaining using jiu-jitsu as a smaller weaker person, Rorion made a joke about how that doesn't include those two. I think my wife recorded it, I'll try to find the clip and post it.

I'm assuming he's just doing privates.No way a NFL quarterback is chancing getting his arm or shoulder hurt rolling hard.
