Roy Nelson Black belt?

Renzo Gracie - Roy Nelson Recieves Black Belt
I have Roy Nelson to win the ultimate fighter, maybe because hes my favorite fighter but i dont know. but when i read this i was almost certain that he did win because if he didnt win would he be training to the point of recieving a black belt in ju-jitsu or would he be chowing down and not training as hard?

He was always a very good grappler... That was his fighting base, so why is it noteworthy that he would finish his quest towards the BB? As the article says he is opening an academy, so the BB helps there.

I think it makes more sense to think that he didn't make the finals since he's now focusing on the academy as a way to earn an income.

Who knows - we'll see.

I'm confused. His belt is red and black in those photos. That isn't normal for a new BJJ BB, is it?

yeah if i recall it has something to do with the degree of a black bet you are and once you hit a certain degree it turns into a red belt

Jesus, like they need more BJJ and MMA in Vegas.

How about opening a school in Alabama or something?

As for the red and black belt, that is NOT a red/black belt. It's a first degree black belt. The red panel is where you put your stripes to indicated 2nd degree, 3rd degree, etc. On BJJ white/blue/purple/brown belts, they have a black panel to put your stripes. On a black belt, they made it red so that it's easier to see.

Wow. He actually looks decently slim (for Roy) in those pics.
