    I am always interested in watching the latest matches of the big names/black belts. However, as a No-Gi practictioner, I am more interested in the No-Gi matches. Because of this, I am always looking for new material, as Gi is more popular in general, imo.

    Beyond the obvious, who are some grapplers to look at for? For example, suggesting Kron a year or so ago would have been a great one.

    I enjoy watching Justin Rader, a Lovato brown belt.

    EDIT: I also forgot Rafael and Guillerme Mendes, two nasty Brasa purple belts (Last time I heard).

    I remember losing to him in the finals as a white back in the day. We fought at 134lbs and he ended up winning the white belt absolute later that day.

    "as Gi is more popular in general, imo."

    I definitely disagree with that.

    Drew Vogel from Team Balance in Philly. I'm not just saying that either, lol (he's my brother). He's been doing great at the tournaments lately and is competing for the first time as a purple at the Worlds this weekend. Here's a video of him:

    based on my experience, all Vogels qualify as grapplers to look out for.
