Who do think would win this fight?

Judo Gene by virtue of not being in his 90s

Gene, because he's trained in more than just a grappling style, and due to him being sadist bastard!

Gotta go with fellow judoka Gene (and he is much more than a judoka)

Wow! I'm surprised there are only 4 replies. I think this is a good question. Personally I think Helio would have won. It wouldn't be a blow out. If they had rolled when he was alive, I think he would of won but it would be a grueling battle. Gene is strong, even now. Not as strong as he used to be but definitely stronger than Helio.

The reason I pick is because he has no choice but to not only practice but develop the leverage aspect because of the lack of physical strength. People were coming from all over the world to roll with him even in his last years.

Gene Lebell is the man. He is one of my favorite Judo guys. But styles make fights and he is tailored for Helio. He is bigger and stronger and would be the aggressor. This is what those guys train for and the guy invented it.

As ive heard it there was a time where the gracies did their challenge matches and they wanted apiece of gene . Gene noted since the particular gracies who made the challenge were much younger than he was it would l be a more fair choice for him to have a match with helio.

The gracies didnt respond after that so i would go with gene by whatever he wants

If true-- very interesting.

If not (likely).... Gene. But not by whatever he wants.

Being the most handsome man on the planet, Gene has nothing to prove to these bums, anyway.
