    The only wrestler that ever won that I could remember was Mark Kerr, who's also 255lbs

    killed is a bit strong

    I don't think he'd win but he has great wrestling, great awareness and subs.

    He'd be up there with the other ADCC wrestler types.

    Saku isn't good at pure grappling?

    he's good.. but thats not really his game. grappling for mma, and grappling with guys who use turtle and x-guard is different.

    yeah but roger is the best there is at heavyweight

    There's probably plenty of guys who could beat sak but never underestimate a good wrestler with good submissions like saku.

    i think saku would do decently. And from what I've heard he has been invited to ADCC many times
