Has there ever been.....

Someone that was BJJ World Champ in Gi that was also an mma world champion of a major organization?

Rickson by armbar!

 Hmm... I believe Murilo Bustamante was a BJJ Gi World Champion and he held the UFC world Title at Middleweight.

Rico Rodriguez was a BJJ World Champ in the Gi (though not sure if it happened at black belt level) and a UFC Word Heavyweight Champion (he was also an ADCC Champion).

BJ Penn, BJJ World Champion in a Gi. Has held UFC World Titles in two different weight classes, welterweight and lightweight, for the UFC.

Just for starters...


Would some of you consider Royce?
