    he has trained multiple world champions, he seem sto have an excellent and detaield instruction style, he has a greta aaproach to BJJ and is very modern in his thinking and opinions on BJJ... and poppa rotzee/talkshowonmute have done a great job selling him as a coach

    You know that Draculino is training for his next MMA fight in Strikeforce.

    War Draculino!

    I actually met and trained with Prof Draculino this morning.

    After the complete butt-whoppin he gave me I'd take him over most people any day!

    EDIT: I was there for the top picture being taken, skinny kid in red shorts. And all I have to say is that Prof Draculino is a monster. This guy is going down!

    Looks to me like you were just about to pass his guard and lay down the law.

    Or posture up to much and get my knee ripped off, or try to ground and pound and get swept.

    But yours sounds better ;) ...if only it was a tad true!

    Question, are we talking gi or no-gi?

    In a gi based altercation I'd go with drac primarily because he has a more active guard and would continually work towards JJ's deformed hands.

    In no-gi I'd also have to go with drac, but mostly because of the age difference and stylistic merits. JJ's game is based around smashes and side control but his overall game still plays towards closed guard strategies. Drac is simply more versatile.
