i met this guy here in rio this weekend at the brasileiros, he said he'd grown up in a favela here yet he had a reaaaaally "western" sounding name, and i had literally NEVER heard of him winning any big titles either in brazil or the US. (while i'm no JSho i do know a fair few famous jiu jitsu guys, at least by name)

Was he just trying to big himself up to the gringo or is it possible he's legit??

it was something really fucking american sounding like jim bob or something, i'm trying to get in touch with my friend who was there to see if he can remember exactly what this guy claimed and to send me the pic we got of him, he's back in the UK now so im waiting for him to wake up and see my message. to be honest though, i think he was some blue belt just fucking around with a couple of gringos

hang on, are we talking black belt world champ here, or the lower belt world champ monikers that a lot of people like to claim as being "equivalent" to being a world champ at the black belt level.

while we are at it, was it ibjjf, or cbjjo, or world cup, or whatever it was

he said black belt world champ. my friend finishes work soon so i expect an answer quickly. the guy was tiny but said he fought at ultra heavy which was another thing that was super weird. maybe he was talking about tae kwon do or something, i have literally never heard of this guy in BJJ circles. unfortunately there was no one brazilian around that i knew to call him out there and then
