    People already considered him a top grappler, I don't know where you got your silly notion from.

    It was a joke buddy.

    I think wrestlers sometimes get penalized in BJJ.

    Hes a nasty grappler period, I think that when you are at that level a BB is almost overrated, look at guys like Hughes, Faber(last night), GSP, none of those guys will probably ever be BBs and are still really extraordinary grapplers.

    It's long overdue in the respect that he's accomplished so much in the no-gi submission world, but has anyone ever seen his gi game?

    I always thought he was a blackbelt. He's won so many competitions that you'd think he was.

    Good for him.

    No. Kyra was brown when she won the first time. I don't know what Kerr was, but it wasn't black. Monson was purple when he won it in 2003. He also won it in ninety something. I don't know what belt he was then, but 6 or more years is a long time to be a purple belt. Monson also came in 3rd place in a black belt gi-jiu jitsu tournament while still a purple belt.

    The higher level belts seem to be more about politics than skill.

    Monson must be at least an A4. :icon_chee He's so good on the ground, really a pleasure to watch, especially in no gi.

    Now that he has caught up with Al Bundy maybe he could give him a good match before succumbing to the Bundybar.
