    What do you guys think of him? (he is the guy with no legs and I think no arms who was a state wrestling champ, and also competes in submission grappling).

    I think that it is very impressive that he actually competes and does well, but also I think that his body gives him a big advantage: No legs would make holding him in your guard difficult as well as no leg locks. He would also be much stronger than everyone in his weight class because his upper body alone weighs as much as his opponent's entire body.

    How could he grapple without arms?

    he is very impressive, nobody can hold him in the guard and he has a neck like a bull. You either have to take his back or try and guillotene him.

    I remember one vide where he armtriangled a guy, his chest and neck are huge, and even with his short arms he can deliver a ton of power.

    However he is never going to be a sub machine because but he is a guard passing machine, no triangle, no armbar, no kimura, no legs to sweep. He's a knightmare opponent. You'd have to catch his head and do a standing guillotene.

    A lot of it is that people don't know what to do against him like you said.

    It will be very difficult to guillotine him correctly b/c of the length of his body. It really would be way too hard to grapple him with no special game plan just for him. And how can you take his back? No way to hold him there b/c of the length of his legs.
