    Side control isn't that great in Ni

    Loop
    you answered your own question there. Takedown (especially traditional judo takedowns) and side control are not as important in BJJ than say guards/passing/back/mount position. High lvl judo newaza isn't really important in bjj (no matter how many posters here claim). If high lvl judo was so important why does Claudio Calasans consistently pull guard?

    Stopped reading at this.point. is red belt fake news? Gracies are part of the Illuminati ? Red Belts are fake. The Earth is flat. Sand Hook never happened?

    Yeah that's what it says in the video above.

    It's pretty weird to be honest. Everyone's congratulating him which is nice and all. But think of it from his perspective. His brother(while accomplished, it's presumed Rickson is better at JJ than Rorion) shows up out of nowhere, and gives him a promotion that's contrary to Rickson's own rules.

    That rorion being rorion.

    He trademarked the Gracie name so none of his relatives can use it.

    Then he crashes his brother seminar and forces a red belt which against rickson own freaking standards.

    Because Rorion KNOWS Rickson is more legit than himself and for Rickson to be content with a blackbelt only delegitimizes Rorion's own red belt, regardless if it came from Helio.

    Personally, I think Rorion promoted Rickson to red because Rorion looks like an idiot with a red belt and the great Rickson is fine with his black.

    Rorion is weakest out of sons and is the eldest

    Helio wasnt the happiest that's why he favoured rickson

    Your eldest should be your prodedgy

    Did he really favor Rickson? Seems like I read some interview with him where he said Rorion would be the successor when he was gone.

    Helio made Rorion the successor as far as teaching and spreading the gospel.

    Helio has been quoted as saying Rickson was the champion amongst his sons, the one with the best technique and sharpest mind.
