    I am curious to know how many Gracie Barra trained mma fighters have fought or are fighting in the ufc?

    I know that Gracie Barra is a big name in the bjj world and I am wondering what kind of influence do they have in the mma/ufc world.

    in my (limited) experience, GB seems to concentrate more on BJJ comps.

    guys like Chael have got graded by them in the past though.

    Renzo is a GB guy, so you could count Frankie Edgar, Ricardo Almeida, GSP, Serra, Weidman, etc. as GB lineage.

    well if we are counting lineage - then RDA is Gordo but Gordo came from GB.
