    Roger Gracie the Black House 185er

    Whats everyone think?

    6"4 and a half
    79 Inch reach

    this guy will be a Giant of an '85er

    It goes without saying that he will be the top grappler in the weight class as well as one of the biggest guys. With no real challengers to the Mw title to contend with I can see him going straight into a fight with Jacare.

    The two have fought 5 times with Gracie winning 3 which really doesnt show how good he is because he has beat Maia and Werdum and his BJJ record stands at 65-7.

    After Mo smashed him I think going to blackhouse was a great move he obsiously needs work on his standup and right now I think he couldnt hang with Kennedy, Jacare or Rockhold.

    I also worry with such a lanky frame will he ever be good at Td's at 185?

    What you all think? See him getting a shot at the SF Title?

    He's going to be skin and bone. He used to walk around at 240!

    He won't beat any of the top guys at 185, striking is awful and BJJ, no matter how elite, will only get you so far.
