One Carlson Gracie black belt you don't always hear mentioned with the best, but who deserves serious consideration is Julio "Foca" Fernandez. I just read a post by Soneca where he said that Carlson told him that Foca was the best black belt he produced. And Carlson told me personally that Julio and another black belt whose name escapes me were the two best competitors on his team. 

It's crazy how most people have not heard of Foca. Even people on the east coast. I have mentioned his name and people just look at me and say "who?".
