Royce in UFC 1 was what? About 190 lbs? If you take him at his best and put him against any top 5 MW today. Royce gets destroyed. Take all the rules away and time limits and Royce gets destroyed. Evolution!! Rickson was a beast at bjj, but I doubt he could beat most anyone on the UFC's roster.

like Bella said "Wrestling > bjj"

Royce was around 175 or so, and beat Dan Severn who weighed in around 260, so Iím not sure the "Wrestling > bjj" statement was true in the late 90ís. In fact I would be interested to see how todayís welterweights would fare against UFC 5ís Dan Severn.

I used to love watching Koscheck go for takedowns; he would run his opponent from one side of the cage to the other, it was so killer!

He got so good at standup that he abandoned it though

Unfortunately I haven't been able to watch his boxing I think he abandoned that as well in trade for eyepokes!
