    Kinda weird to see Matt Brown get his Brown belt on this win...maybe if it was by submission? Maybe I'm a bit too cynical to say this is how everyone in the UFC has a Black Belt in BJJ

    He earned it in the gym prior to this fight. Him surviving that RNC attempt and neck crank after having his liver destroyed twice was just icing on the cake.

    Not every BJJ instructor grades the same. Some base it on strict BJJ competition merit, some on knowledge and putting in the time/effort, and some base it on things like being successful in MMA.

    silva, a black belt, couldn't do anything to him, in the first round.

    I'd say he's at brown belt at least.

    Most of the time you see ceremonial belt givings, the guy earned it previously.

    Like when Frank Mir broke Tim Sylvia's arm, he "earned" his black belt that night. But that was just ceremony, he'd earned it long ago, that was just the moment he was allowed to take possession of it.

    The artistic way Brown's brown belt was tied was very amusing.
