Love the analogy.

I like Ruas. I even ordered his instructional videos years ago. I wanted him to be the real deal. Someone that gets out struck by Oleg Taktarov is not the fighter I had in mind. Ruas did have good technique, but he could be beaten on the feet by rudimentary strikers. His protege, Pedro Rizzo, gives more meaning to Ruas' teachings than anything I actually say Ruas do on video.

Ruas was so passive, Royce may have a chance against him in a stand-up fight. That's all I'm saying.
