    I'd like to see him train seriously. IMHO he'd be a monster with his core strength and freaky flexibility. Think Joel Tudor but better in every physical aspect.

    Obviously, he's a black belt and Kelly's not even a white belt.

    IMO out of all other sports(non grappling) surfer's make the most natural transition to submission grappling.

    well I'm basing this off experience and observation, not imagination. But I suppose in imagination they could.

    Football players seem to make the transition rather easily. Or at least we've seen former football players have success in BJJ.
