    Rickson does look old.

    I love the "Full Instructor" patch he has on his gi. Is that just in case someone doesn't recognize him?

    Naw those are bad pictures of both. Jacare is fricken intense in person and seems to be in phenomenal shape, a lot bigger than I remember too.

    On another side note, I was chillin with one of Ricksons students before our matches and we walked past Rickson, I told him "Why didnt you say hello?" he tells me that he said hello to him earlier and Rickson starts to pose with him as if he thought he wanted a picture or something. HAHA!

    This guy says "Rickson I belong to your academy!"

    Rickson says "Oh which affiliate?"

    he says "No your main Academy!"

    Rickson looks at him and says "Oh, yeah lots of tough guys there" laughs and walks away

    I thought it was funny and fucked up at the same time

    that is terrible! I'd be pissed. I'm sure Rickson has a ton of students though and so this isnt all that surprising

    Good to see Jarrod Bunch winning the purple belt division. I followed his career from Michigan to the NY Giants.
