    At sport BJJ, probably Royler. At MMA, I'd give it to Royce. Renzo is probably the most rounded.

    Royler

    Rillion is supposed to be the Gracie with the best guard, but he doesn't compete much it seems. He's always there in the Gracie train, guy with light hair.

    Rolyer is great in sport, but I'd go with Royce and Renzo is MMA.

    Royler has done excellently in competition, gi and no-gi, and I know that Renzo has done well in Abu Dhabi, so those two come to mind.

    Rillion is older than even Rickson, that's why.

    1. Royler (the most technical and successful competition wise)
    2. Roger (big, technical, young, TONS of promise)
    3. Royce (not as techical as the rest but very aggressive, good for MMA)
    4. Renzo (well rounded, did well but not great in everything)
     
  15. Roger's awesome... but he doesn't even look like a Gracie, which makes him cooler.

    Helio.
    For MMA I think Renzo, Royce did better earlier on, but Renzo showed his ability to adapt and evolve, he modified his art more than Royce and learned more skills of the game.

    It's Roger. In the past two years he's tapped Werdum, Saulo and Xande Ribeiro, Margarida, Jacare, Terere.. to name a few.

    He's only had a couple of narrow - and perhaps controversial - losses to Jacare, also an amazing grappling.
