Everybody wonders who is the best pound for pound grappler in the world and there is much debate to this topic. However there is one person that many consider the greatest heavyweight and open class champion of all time without a doubt. This person goes by the name of Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida and is one of the most exciting jiu-jitsu grapplers of our time.

He dominated for years in the heavyweight and open class divisions which has made him one of the biggest superstars in jiu-jitsu.
