htownbjj - Great video, in this one he sounds like the most reasonable guy in the world. In other videos (like the one JRockwell posted), he comes across as a bit, shall we say, eccentric.
Oh he is definitely eccentric! Which is why I wanted to do a video with him :)

Dustin is a great guy and I've always loved his videos because he's such a character. I think we've got some of the best from him in this one Phone Post

Agreed- I thought it was ironic for a grappler who hasnt won BB Mundials or ADCC to always talk about how winning was everything.

strange critique as dustin has won actual fights using bjj

Dustin did a seminar at my gym about 4 years ago. It was a strange experience but I will never forget "Not ballet toes, Hammer Toes."

I dont think so- I like his enthusiasm.

However, he has videos where he says things like 2nd place means nothing, only being a champion is important, etc etc.

So if you say that, shouldnt it be safe to assume that you have won multiple championships at the highest levels?

And, if you haven't, then maybe winning isn't everything or you would be in constant disappointment, no?

Didn't watch the vid but I'll chime in on the accent. Native speakers of English sometimes have ill feelings towards other Native Speakers who have developed an accent, assuming they've done it on purpose, are trying to be 'cool,' exotic, or at least fit in.

Having lived overseas for 8 years, I'll say: Some native speakers of English can retain their native accent just fine and others cannot, when abroad.

It's quite possible to unintentionally acquire an accent. It happens when your around majority non-native speakers.

Lol, I have no dog in this fight.

God bless him for tapping out my teacher as a brown belt. It probably help motivate Marcelo later in his career.  

Marcelo is human, I don't get butthurt when he loses.
