    Lots of talk about BJJ being exposed today after Dern/Gracie.

    Lovato comes to mind though as a fighter whose top skill is BJJ (or weight cutting, guys huge) that's on top on the game right now.

    Probably, Lovato is pure BJJ and beat Mousasi who has beaten UFC champs.

    I think Maia is still the guy.

    Yea his size for the weight class is probably his second best trait. Always looks massive against everyone he fights.

    Lovato Jr is the best middleweight in the world, maybe of all time

    He is basically unbeatable and will dominate Mousasi again
