    This occured a few days ago as a friendly no gi grappling match at Machado's academy.

    BJ was at about 190 and John at about 205

    It was very even, some of the best Jiu Jitsu I have ever seen.

    BJ took John's back once but John escaped quickly, no problem.

    John had a few nice take downs.

    They appeared to both be going at about 90% effort. Neither attacked the feet, and there were times they both could have. John seemed to be preventing BJ from doing things that BJ normally gets people with. There was a ton of mutual respect and they both has a lot of fun. They got to their feet many times and John seemed to get the better of takedowns. Overall it was about even.

    And dont forget the "What color shorts and rash guard were they wearing?" question.
