Was this actually a good comparison? Has Gordon Ryan actually done anything that has eclipsed the career of Royler Gracie? Both men have 3 ADCC world titles. Royler holds more world titles in BJJ. Gordon Ryan has won multiple Eddie Bravo Invitational tournaments. Royler has fought Eddie Bravo multiple times. Royler has done 10 professional MMA fights, Gordon Ryan has done 0.
Both men are phenomenal athletes, competitors, and martial artists in their own right. But the claim that because Gordon Ryan is younger, therefore Royler’s accomplishments no longer matter is beyond silly to me.
