    Just curious is anyone has had the chance to roll with him, and where you think his skills lie.

    He has great core strength and an amazing grip.

    IIRC he is a purple under Rickson so I'm guessing he's pretty good.

    The only footage I've seen was him giving some asshole a RNC on stage.

    It would be rad to roll with him. Tool is my all time fav band, so that would be wild as hell to have that chance.

    I also heard that, but that was a few years ago. Could he be a brown by now?

    I read an interview where he said he quit BJJ because his back was getting injured too much. He's a little guy, and people kept stacking him too hard.

    So I don't think you're gonna get the chance to roll with him anytime soon.

    i know he was still doing privates with Ryron Gracie on a regular basis just a couple years ago. not sure if he got to brown though. i guess Ryron would be a good person to ask.

    Please tell me you uchi mata'd him into an armbar or something. I love Tool but I still would prefer him to get pwned on the mat.
