GRACIEMAG.com issued the poll to find out which figure from the Jiu-Jitsu world deserved to feature on the cover of our exceedingly prestigious publication. So the people pulled up their gi sleeves and sent in their votes here in the comments section.
Among those most remembers, champions Rafael and Guilherme Mendes, Professor Pedro Sauer, gold medal collector Hannette Staack and the untiring Felipe Costa, 2003’s roosterweight world champion and perhaps the one to travel most “carrying” his Jiu-Jitsu with him in his backpack.
Besides them, Carlson Gracie and aces Demian Maia, Rômulo Barral, Renzo and Daniel Gracie, Jean Jacques Machado, José Aldo, Fabrício Werdum, Roger Gracie, Marcus Bochecha, Gabi Garcia & Luanna Alzuguir, Caio Terra, and many others were also remembered.
The GRACIE publishing team would like to thank the readers for their prompt participation. All the suggestions will be taken into account to pick the upcoming covers for 2011. Stick around, some good surprises are coming up.
