    Well deserved. But I remember him being a white belt only a couple years ago.

    Probably his no gi, wrestling, and mma translated and all he needed was learning gi grips and stuff.
    Just saying that was really fast though

    No because he's under different coach.

    But I agree, both Demetrious and Conor are advanced grapplers.

    To be fair Rashad has never been submitted in MMA, Schaub talked about how he's one of the hardest guys to sub even in training

    He's more of a defensive grappler and doesn't get taken down often because of his great wrestling

    Yup some coaches want you to have very good gi game. That's why Faber's coach refused to give him Black belt for years. Hume is a bad motherfucker and he wants everything to be perfect. Let's just be real his grappling is already in very high black belt level.

    Unlike Conor, Johnson didn't get a brown belt after a (T)KO win. He didn't even get his brown belt after the Borg finish.

    His brown belt is worth more than 80% of black belts among UFC fighters.

    Most of these belts get handed out as a prestige object. I also think these BJJ coaches that hand them out do this for marketing purposes. They want to be associated with certain fighters. Makes sense.

    But every belt has to be taken with a grain of salt. At the end of the day it's just a belt. What you actually do on the mat is important. And DJ is obviously a great grappler.

    McGinger took Conor's soul just to know what having one felt like.

    Belts don't mean shit. Jon Jones is a blue belt and would grapple the shit out of most black belts in the UFC

    BJJ is for women and kids. It says so on the signs. Don't be proud to show it off as a man, unless you have no fist, or feet, or knees .
