Fedor destroyed Minotauro in his prime. Minotauro was considered the top BJJ specialist at that time. Khabib vs RDA. He controlled Dos Anjos very well the match is a good example of Sambo vs BJJ since it was about 85% just grappling. Hector Lombard vs Jake Shields and Palhares. He beat the hell out these two who are considered one of the best BJJ specialist (top 5). He destroyed Palhares and he showed great grappling skills against Shields. Note: Cuban Judo foundation is Russian Judo which is more similar to Sambo than traditional Japanese Judo. Sergei vs Werdum... Sergei was able to defend himself pretty well on the ground against a top 3 BJJ specialist. Kim vs Nate. Kim did an excellent job using a great top control against Nate's slick BJJ. Karo Parisyan. I know he is a Judo guy but his Judo is Armenian/Russian style which is more similar to Sambo than traditional Judo. He almost submitted Diaz and showed excellent top control.
