    BJJ blackbelts in MMA? not to sound rude, but I think some fighters self-proclaim themselves as blackbelts in BJJ. Vitor getting submitted a few times to fighter who don't even have a belt rank in BJJ, wagnney fabiano is another, which fighters with BJJ blackbelts do you have bad BJJ in MMA?

    All black belts are not equal. That is the problem. Some people give them out too easily.

    Jon Jones is not ranked but he submitted Machida also.
    Overeem has done great in actual grappling matches.
    Vitor did well in ADCC, what are you talking about?

    Disagree with the former since Cain is a great grappler but 100% agree about Mike Massenzio.

    Are you asking which BJJ BB's haven't demonstrated it well in MMA, or are you asking if some guys just say they have a BB when they really don't?

    Whoever gave Shannon Ritch his BB probably winces every time he hears the name now.

    You mean the same Vitor who nearly subbed the champ with an armbar? Just because he doesn't use it often doesn't mean his bjj isn't legit...leave him off your list. You don't have to be a black belt to apply bjj well in a fight, it's about finding the opportunities and taking them, Lauzon is a purple belt and is one of the best sub artists in the UFC.

    LOL Mike Goldberg. At least Joe Rogan was there to embarrass himself immediately after.
