tapnaporsnapbro - he had an amazing run and was the best of his generation. but i'm still not sure if i'd consider him the GOAT because he retired too early IMO. the rumors that it was PED related don't help either.
for GOAT, i would go with someone like roger gracie. i like cobrinha too for still killing it while pushing 40. lucas lepri is getting there too for being so good for so many years.
everyone has a different definition of GOAT in BJJ. personally i'm impressed by longevity. i feel like a see a lot people come on to the scene and kill it for years only to fade away. the ones who are still able to dominate in their mid 30s impress me.
Cobrinha is the GOAT simply because he is at the top of the heap at the same time his kid is near the top of the heap.
has that happened in any sport?
