If this was 1980 perhaps his video would carry a lot of weight. But we know from the early UFC bouts that BJJ is not something to be taken lightly.

He fought a beginner. Proof of nothing. Yes, to be a good fighter you need strikes and a ground game. Yes, the prime defense against a BBJ guy is trying to stay on your feet. Easier said than done. A good BBJ guy has trained in plenty of take downs while the beginner like the one he went against is weak on take downs.

The Good BJJ Guys are definitely masters of their art.  I think every art is good but most importantly is the person behind the system.
I have met good people in every system.

BJJ is not MMA. 

Some of these BJJ guys sit down at the beginning of a match.

Comical.

a lot of the BJJ people think they invented ground fighting but they didn´t.
Look at Kosen Judo, kosen Judo is not like Kodokan Judo.
It is in my opinion the Original ground fighting that BJJ came from.

Old man Gracie learned jiu jitsu from a Japanese teacher.

he refined (in his opinion) some things but yes.
Of course the BJJ guys will disagree but i have met some BJJ guys who actually like Judo as i have also a Judo background ( well before the BJJ thing happened..or was known)
apples & oranges as both can be winners.
My boyhood hero was Mr Neil adams ..

Mr Neil Adams is the best ambassador of British judo.



I can highly recommend his book Armlocks.
