Has anyone rolled with anyone big? I rolled with royce gracie earlier this year
Yeah there was this one dude in my class. His nickname was diabetes, and he was like 320 pounds of fat, he was pretty big I don't know what I was thinking =(
i mean like famous jiu jitsu guys not literally big haha
Gui Mendes, needless to say I got worked but loved every minute of it! Hoping to roll with Cobrinha later this month when he's at my club.
at this point in the game, anyone I roll with is big compared to me lol.

rodrigo gracie has come to my class but didnt roll with anyone. hes kind of a douche haha royce is a great guy real nice like have a beer and chill kind of guy

Oh and I didn
