Yeah I guess BJ is too small but He did fight through a standstill with Machida. Ok you say Machida was a bit green but He would absolutely destroy Duarte even then.
I was just making a point that this guy wasnt that skilled, no more skilled than a Tank Abbott yet I bet theres a handful of fighters now that would beat him faster than Rickson did.
BTW I think Rickson with a Gi is one of the greatest but as an MMA fighter, He would have had numerous loses if He fought today even in his prime.
