Frank Gallagher - I honestly have no idea, is Ricardo highly respected as an instructor? I obviously know he is a competitor. Phone Post 3.0

Absolute top notch instructor. Coaches multiple world champions in BJJ. Sought out by many of the best fighters on Earth for his MMA and BJJ coaching. One of the world's best.

Training with guys like Danaher, Roger and Renzo you would definitely think he would be a monster on the ground. Phone Post 3.0

As usual people will say hey he doesn't use BJJ! As if its only playing guard. Frankie hasn't come close to being submitted, and is never in a bad spot on the ground. Guys defense against Ben gullotines was very impressive.

Yeah I definitely agree. But he was nearly done by that a knee bar against Tyson Griffin. Well that was years ago. Phone Post 3.0

Professor Almeida is a great teacher. I've walked away laughing at how fast I understood the moves because of him.

Ten eight round - Well, BJ's odds just blew out. Phone Post

LoL @ This

Like anyone not going full-retard would think "Two Times" would have one in a million chance of owning B.J. in anything BJJ related...

Andre Pederneiras > Ricardo Almeida

Not gonna lie though, it would be a honor to train under Danaher...

With that being said, congrats!

And both times he used proper technique (they covered it in a gracie breakdown) on how to escape is the point I was trying to make.

Some places dont do stripes, just get the belt when you are ready.
