If you could choose any 8 prominent MMA fighters to compete in a gi grappling tournament, who would they be?  They need to be accomplished MMA fighters.  For example, you can’t put in Andre galvao just cuz he had a few mma fights.  Don’t worry about weight.  Pretend we live in a magical dimension where only technique and strategy matters.  Here’s mine:

1. Jacare 

2. Maia 

3. rockhold (he won the worlds at blue belt)

4. Cormier 

5. Ryan hall

6. Kron Gracie 

7. Khabib 

8. DJ

 

Tried to go for a mix of accomplished gi fighters and guys who would just be interesting to see how well (or not well) they would do.  For example, I could have put in roger Gracie but I already know what he can do in the gi.  Who else you got?
