Who have you grappled?

Recommended Posts

I've trained jiu jitsu off and on for about 4 years now and have rolled with some pretty tough no names. Probably a lot of people on this forum have. I'm also sure that some people have rolled with some "names" or at least people with some kind of achievement. Here's a small list from a guy who himself is no gift to MMA.

 

Steve Berger - 3 time UFC vet, this guy is incredible and with his 0-3 record in the octagon, it really puts in perspective just how good these guys are.

 

Jesse Finney - He's fights for Strikeforce and is scheduled for a Main Event in another promotion against Josh Neer in August. He's tough, I've tapped him, though.

 

Booker DeRouse and Pat Benson - other Strikeforce fighters I used to train with regularly.

 

Titus Taylor - 2-time Division II National Champion in Wrestling.

 

Andrew Waites - 2010 State Champion, Wrestling SuperHeavyweight.

 

 

 

Who'd you grapple?

Wrestled a little with Cain Velasquez, he's about 6 or 7 years older than me though, so it was obviously during practice, also went to a few tournaments with him. Also wrestled with/under Chance Farrar, who fought in the WEC for a little bit but kinda flamed out after his loss to Urijah Faber

It was just High School/Collegiate wrestling style. It was intense, he wrestled just like he fights, constant pressure and control and takes advantage of every mistake you make

Just a few people:

 

Kurt Angle - We were at a hot dogg stand and he pushed it so I slapped him, he tried doing the ankle lock on me so I got him in a figure 4 and he tapped like a *****

 

Busta Rhymes - He's quite a good grappler, I belive hes a brown belt, I made him tap by dreadlock hold. 2nd time around I made him tap by kimura

 

Was about to grapple Fedor - But his mum wouldnt let him out, she said he had to eat his fish finger sandwhich before he was allowed out

 

Thats bout it really, nothing to brag about I guess
