GSP ROLLS WITH ROGER AND BRAULIO AND, OF COURSE, EVERYONE GOES NUTS.

MMA and Brazilian jiu jitsu are forever bonded like salad and salad dressing.  Which is the salad and which is the dressing, you ask?  I'm not saying.  But jiu jitsu is the salad.  I know that doesn't make sense, but that's kind of how it works around here. 

Roger Gracie and  Braulio Estima recently trained with none other than UFC welterweight champ, Georges St-Pierre, and, the grappling community is aptly a buzz with interest.  It's not every day that superstar athletes of this caliber in their respective sports meet up and train like this.  The pics say it all, so I won't say any more.

  3. I can take credit for starting the buzz on these pics, although Craig the photographer didn't seem too happy about it... Still, they have taken on a life of their own now and everyone is crediting him appropriately.

    This was at Roger's school in London.

    Right on! We saw them on Flickr and The Grappling Dummy about the same time. We were a little concerned about Craig and his copyright, so I steered clear and linked only.

    Great photos.
