NO ONE CAN DENY ROLDOLFO IS ON TOP OF THE BJJ HEAP RIGHT NOW.
We all saw it coming and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it. Rodolfo Vieira came on so strong this year at 2011 Pan and Abu Dhabi World Pro Finals, it seemed like there was no doubt he'd take Worlds. And, he did just that.
The guard changes quickly in the world of BJJ. The athletes who can maintain domination in their respective weight classes are few. Right now, Vieira is on top - he's won his weight division and absolute for three major tournaments this year, including Worlds. True, he has not faced Roger Gracie this year. We still see that as the one real test of superiority in the BJJ ranks.
