I think that has more to do with gracies refusing to "tap out" than with the competition they've faced. Matt Hughes would have tapped most people with the armbar he had on Royce, but Royce refused to tap.

I was thinkin he was the only american to choke out a gracie (didn't think he tapped) but I haven't seen the match in so long.

I thought Bravo won with a shoulder lock?

Edit: I just looked it up, and it was a Triangle, which Royler tapped from instead of going unconcious.

Up until that triangle Royler was winning but he screwed up and got caught.
Other than that I don't think Eddie has ever done anything special in ADCC and I'm sick and tired of his claim as the only american to ever tap a Gracie.

Wallid Ismael (granted he's not american) choked Royce Gracie unconcious but you never hear about that.
