    You're taking the comparison a tad too literally. They were both dominant by relying on being exceptionally skilled with a limited tool set that their opponents had no clue how to stop. I definitely agree that Gracie's accomplishments were far more impressive and he will have the better legacy.

    In Ronda's defense though I will say that her opponents at least were familiar with all of the prominent disciplines in MMA. Some of the guys Gracie was subbing had never even heard of ju-jitsu.

    Royce was beating guys who outweighed him by 100lbs. Ronda is not even close to being that good.

    Who knows? If Cain hadn't pulled out we could've saw a legend be born

    No probs, I just think it's really unfair to compare both exactly because the world was all different back in that time.

    And I agree with your point of view defending Ronda, but at the same time Royce probably never heard of savate back in that era (nobody i Brazil did), and yet the guy who fought savate did awesome, remember?
