In BJJ/MMA fanatics forums, I often read that Remco Pardoel was a judo beast, a judo phenomenon ecc. to magnify the Royce's victory.
Surely Remco had a very good judo game, he was born and lived in a judo powerhouse (Netherlands), but he never won an European Championship, a World Championship or an Olympic Championship.
But if Royce, in 1994, had found in the cage a 1994 David Douillet (European gold medalist, World gold medalist and Olympic bronze medalist) or a 2005 Keiji Suzuki (Asian, World and Olympic champion)? I am certain we would have another UFC 2 winner.
