American wrestling has been kicking jiu jitsu ass for over 100 years.

Not watching propaganda. The gracies had to learn a triangle choke from a judo book. Read news articles and find the truth.

TTT for anyone who can get a hold of Rolls son or family so they can get that Sambo metal to them. I am sure they would love to have it.

I teared up when  he mentioned Rolls passing....how he lost interest in bjj and just went back to wrestling. You can see in his eyes Rolls was someone that really touched his life.

I met him once in the mid 2000s. He was huge. My old instructor is Renzos cousin and Igor, Daniel and Rolles have come down a few times over the years. Awesome people.  Ive just been a bit out of touch with the scene lately.

Carlson Jr wrestled. He was on the Brazilian Pan Ams Greco-Roman team. The idea that the Carlos side of the aisle was anti-wrestling has always been bullpoop.

Rolls and crew are not the guys that were supposed to meet Bob at the airport right ?


They kind of slipped in as an opportunity to work with a wrestler right ?
