Rollin' with Marcelo is becoming the quintessential right of passage for any world class BJJ athlete who happens to be traveling through NYC. Right after your trip to the Statue of Liberty and Central Park, it's straight the MGinAction for a roll with the man himself. Then, later a maybe catch that Spider Man musical on Broadway. Something like that.
We'll lay it out there - Marcelo Garcia has to be the next in line after Rickson Gracie for the popular dream roll among all grapplers. He even seems to be the measuring stick for the top pros. If you're a world champion of any weight class and you're in town, you wanna stop by and test yourself against him. And, from what it seems, he's open to rolling with all levels and all sizes, anytime. And, that is badass.
Is he the best of this era? Well, that's a matter of opinion. But, we certainly believe he's a legend in the making.
