I think this will be interesting to view down the road, to see who moves higher on the list and who gets bumped off.


who do you think are the Top 10 Best All Time BJJ Competitors as of the end of 2012.

Very tough question. My crack at it:


1. Rickson Gracie
2. Roger Gracie
3. Marcelo Garcia
4. Rafa Mendes
5. Royler Gracie
6. Margarida
7. Vitor Shaolin
8. Pe de Pano
9. Leo Viera
10. Caio Terra

Im sure there are people who deserve to be on there that I have unfairly ommitted.

Pretty solid list although not sure if you can put Rickson #1 or anywhere in the top 10 as I don't think he competed nearly as much as the others; I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you have to put xande in the list somewhere as well....maybe robson moura as well... Damn 10 is tough Phone Post

How possibly could Clark be even mentioned as one of top 10 best BJJ competitors of all-time, he has yet to win a single world title at the black belt level?

How does Caio consistently make these types of lists, but Malfacine, the guy who has beat him at the last 4 world championships, does not?

Pretty much this, except switch Xande and Marcelo and drop Caio for Bruno.

Roger is the GOAT IMO forever and always. Phone Post

I don't follow bjj comps enough to give a realistic list, but I know enough to say that anyone who makes a top 10 BJJ competitor list w/o Royler in it, is absolutely insane.
