    I would lower the people who's stop competing mainly in Bjj and Submission to do MMA, and raise for example Braulio, who win division and absolute at Adcc.

    I gotta say Bruno Malfacine is highly underrated, having won Gold in his division 3 of the last 4 times he contested his division at Worlds. Dudes nearly unstoppable at Galo!

    Samuel Braga has already proven to be among the best ever at the light feather weight division, what is he like a 6x world champ? You may not put him on that list...but he is up there for sure.
