Who to you think have the best BJJ in MMA.
Ricardo "Demente" Abreu was on TUF Brasil 3 and won his fight tonight. He belongs to this list.
I'd also include Aldo, Rani Yahya.
I also love Condit's and Pettis' guard work.
Jacare by far, followed by Werdum, Sergio Moraes, and Antonio Braga Neto..
Sonnen. That was a great choke he put on Shogun.
Add Gunner with some of these mentions.
Condit, Jacare, Maia, Werdum
Aldo ofc he has like the best BJJ stats in EA ufc game.
Drysdale is still under contract isn't he? If so, he certainly belongs on that list.
Of the elite BJJ practitioners who are also top UFC contenders, I'd pick Werdum. He has become a surprisingly well-rounded fighter in MMA, but in terms of pure submission skill, he's still dangerous even to grapplers. Often we see elite grapplers neutralize each other and rarely, if ever, submit other accomplished grapplers, but he can.
I would have enjoyed seeing him cross paths with Josh Barnett, but obviously one has been on the rise while the other recently dropped in the rankings. Hopefully it happens at some point.
Jacare, Maia and Werdum top this list.
Fill in the rest as necessary.
Maia is the right answer.
werdum over jacare? sorry but no
Can you imagine if Lavar Johnson fought Werdum and werdum got hurt bad and tapped to strikes and you had put 50000 on Lavar by submission.
why not? Jacar
I think Werdum's Bjj in mma is certainly better.
Jacare, Maia, Werdum for sure, plus Robert Drysdale if he gets another fight.
Edit... this is a list, not an order of uber-ness.
Separate names with a comma.
