    GSP, Anderson Silva, Shogun = BJJ BB

    Frankie Edgar, Brocl Lesnar = BJJ Purple.

    TS question was:

    "Who would you say are the top five guys who are bjj bb in mma".

    You are thinking who is top BJJ BB in MMA.

    I am thinking who is in the top of MMA and happens to be a BJJ BB as well.

    i guess peoples answers will differ depending on how the question is interpreted..

    besides Roger's MMA record is still premature, im sure hell be up there as soon as he gets more fights out of the way.

    I am taking this thread to refer to which BJJ BB's are the top MMA practitioners. That is, who is the best in MMA.

    Gracie hasn't done shit with his.

    Jacare has impressed more with his striking.

    Maia is really smooth with his.

    Palhares is down-right scary.

    It's like when someone says that GSP has the best MMA-adapted wrestling...not that he is a better wrestler than say, Hendricks.

    I would say

    Maia
    Palhares
    Aoki
    Werdum
    Souza

    The reasons i don't put Roger, its because he is still untested, there is a big difference between winning BJJ tournaments and BJJ in MMA where everyone is slippery, there are stand-ups and striking.

    Submitting a way over the hill Randleman in 2 rounds is no big accomplishment, Fedor did that after being suplexed head on the first round.

    Penn is not there mainly because of the smothering that GSP did against him.

    This seems about right. Not sure about Roger though, like others have said Roger hasn't had many MMA fights.

    is this just MMA in the US? Because there are other organizatons out there (just if you havent heard)... where is Shaolin, Galvao and Bibiano?!? All huge names in Jiu Jitsu much bigger then Palhares or Penn (or even Maia for that matter). Even BJJ for MMA I would put Shaolin on top of most
