BJJ vs other sports
When you looking on YouTube for comparisons of BJJ with other sports you can find a real vastness of it. You want to check BJJ vs wrestling or vs judo?

Check all 3 of them below.
The first one here is at the same time the most popular one. This video is a little longer than the other two (it last almost 10 minutes) and it is not a straight forward fight as you can expect. It is NABBA Bodybuilder Matt Smedley Vs. BJJ champion J.T Tenacity strength war (2 disciplines, 3 exercises each). Some people write in the comments it is just a clickbait. But you have been warned what this is. Watch it at your own risk.
If you are deeply disappointed by the above video and you are thirsty for some action you will like the videos below. One is more professional, other more casual. The first one is the MMA fight between Mariusz Pudzianowski – the 5x World Strongman champion and Rolles Gracie – 4th degree BJJ blackbelt.
While the other video is what you expected from the first Bodybuilder vs BJJ video. It is just over 1 minute of Bodybuilder taking an ass whooping from a BJJ Black Belt.
