    yes the sherdog black belt is so coveted. think of how good that will look on my resume.

    keenan was selected to fight the worlds greatest and heaviest black belts.
    if he wins, he should definitely be promoted, regardless of what the ibjjf says

    I think if he even wins a couple matches he should be promoted (somehow). I can't see a reality where he actually wins the whole thing, given his competition.

    I thought this was going to be about Keenan in the same weight class as Palhares in ADCC

    Um...both of these kind of pale in comparison to Felipe Pena, who beat the defending Black Belt World Champion a weight class below his own as a brown belt, and he's still a brown belt.

    Just saying.

    Maybe his coach feels he's not at BB to his personal level? Maybe he's sandbagging? Who cares?

    Fredson Paixao did the same thing. Well Mestre' Osvaldo Alves did the promotion. FYI they didn't get promoted at the same time. They are from different training eras. :)
