    when have you ever seen Monson compete with a gi? :confused:

    Drysdale, Jacare, and Garcia were all mentioned more than once.

    Ahhh.......ME ;) OK OK then how about Gumby, Scotty, Ryan, and Bevois and all of the other guys here on this site. We are the best JJ family out there.

    Right now it's hard to put Roger higher than Xande in a "pound for pound" list, given that Xande (a smaller man) just beat Roger.

    My 'absolute' best list (based largely on performances at the recent Mundials):

    1/ Xande
    2/ Roger
    3/ Neto
    4/ Galvao
    5/ Lovato
    6/ Moraes

    However, this leaves out some top competitors (e.g., Drysdale, Garcia, Jacare) who didn't compete at these Mundials (or this year's Pan Am's). I'll let other more knowledgable people improve upon this list...

    Of course, there's one more name that has to be considered when compiling an 'absolute best' list: Rickson. It's a pity he no longer competes...
