There's always going to be someone somewhere that's going to be able to beat people who are considered the best,
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

yeah but the stories of how the Gracie's handled it, if true, are pretty deplorable.
