get over yourself. they left for more money, not because fedor was their main priority.
and as for the BJJ thing, im not gonna say who would win cuz i honestly wouldn't want to predict something like that. but dont ever compare it to the nog fights, since there is a HUGE difference between pulling off a submission in a BJJ tournament and when a fighter is getting pummled to the face with punches..
Average MMA fans don't know that Royce is not that good. He was selected by Gracies for UFC 1 because he is small, NOT because he is good. Him being small would really drive home the advantage of GJJ and ground fighting.
Royce has never won any major grappling titles, while Fedor is a top level grappler on Olympic level, world champion, national champion, Olympic team member, European Judo Champion etc etc etc
Fedor beats Royce 100 out of 100 times in any grappling match.
Lol@ an average fan. I've been a fan since the beginning and have also competed some. Royce beat all the mma figthers in his day. Before Royce there was no such thing as cross training in all of the arts you were either a brawler, wrestler, or bjj guy. Get over yourself man. Seriously it's fucking retarded to say Fedor a GREAT fighter can own a man who cut his teeth on arm barring and triangling fucksticks. Dude it's fucking ridiculous I agree Fedor is more powerful than Royce ALOT MORE so but a fucking guy that's a good grappler and is an accomplished one can't just come into a BJJ match and score on a blackbelt who was the face of the family in the pioneering days of MMA. Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock ring a bell? Weren't they accomplsihed grapplers? Anyways the point is if Fedor isn't trained in BJJ how can he win a bjj match? Just because he's fucking Fedor? It's stupid. Kinda like saying he'd be able to jump in a Taekwondo tourney and just obliterate people...
