Last night's BJJ class there were a couple players in from another school. The first sparring session I rolled with a blue belt from the other school. I gave up 10-20 lbs to the guy on top of a lot of experience. I pretty well got handled. Only tapped once, but spent the whole time under pressure and defending. As soon as the whistle blew, the guy was rolling with said "What or where did you train before." I told him I'd wrestled when I was younger, but had only trained in BJJ for a few weeks. He said, "You've got a great base, in six months or so, you're going to be a real handful." It was a great moment. The rest of class was pretty unremarkable, but that had me feeling good for the rest of the night.
