haha, I've had 12 thumbs down votes in the last 20mins that's classic. The internet prefers to hate than love. And I love the hate :)  basement dwellers.

^ yeah man Remco was a savage - I've heard from plenty of folks that he has his way with just about anyone who comes across him on the mats (though he didn't want to admit as much in person). He did say Roger Gracie and Braulio Estima made him feel like a child when they rolled though - he "enjoyed the experience in humility - it keeps you improving and learning."

Ahhh Remco is a seriously awesome person. I have trained with him & partied with him. My Black Belts are under him & Christophe Leininger!!!! I remember watching UFC knockouts on PPV one New Years Eve. His fight with Weit came on. He just sat there grinning like crazy!!!

I loved his fight with Weit...it was like he dropped the elbow and thought..."Huh, that was pretty good..." and then did it again and again.

haha, more likely the "Aoki is LW GOAT" thread. In fairness there's 4,000 words defending that opinion, it wasn't just a trolljob :)

@Grappling Girl - that's cool! You've got pretty good "early UFC" credentials haha... Pardoel & Leninger, UFC's jiu jitsu rep and UFC III's judo rep! :-)

ps- for the record, Remco is a cool motherfucker and despite the fact I'm physically like a small child next to him, he's respectful as fuck and pretty chill too. Good guy.

He'll be a good addition to the Asia scene when he comes out here.
