    That doesnt mean shit, he is still pretty decent. Black belts some times dont mean shit: Junior dos Santos is black belt for example

    and jones is still technically a.. what was it like white or blue or some shit? plus theres plenty of " black belts " who aren't shit on the ground.


    conor did better than poirier on the ground (outside of one guillotine attempt), better than a bunch of people khabib has faced and did 40 x better than gaethje.


    yeah conor doesn't have the best BJJ, but it's not terrible it's just a little above average or just average for a pure striker.

    But a black belt on Twitter.
    That's what really matters

    Conors nuclear left makes quick work of any Bjj anyways its one of those punches fighters get shocked by, its like they can even believe how hard he just hit them.

    You have to put it certain hours with a gi usually so he could be better but without hours in gi spent

    I think he already has black belt level BJJ. Honestly for a pro fighter the different between brown and black isn't as big as people think.

    Hell a lot of BJJ competition usually combine brown and black

    Didn't he get a black belt recently? Must've been Cub Swansons BJJ coach awarding that one.

    What’s the source on this?

    If he is then good for Conor.


    Belts are given out like candy these days, I know Kavanaugh isn’t really a reputable name but hopefully he’s at least worth his weight in coaching BJJ.


    To answer your question, from Brown to Black can easily take half a decade. It’s the hardest leap imo. Most Black Belts earned under 10 years are trash. Very few exceptions.

    Depends on your BJJ Coach.
    There is no fixed time after which you will get a Black Belt.

    Really depends on the coach. Jones is only a purple belt I believe.

    Yea, never put aa ton of stock into belts from this or that. Like most said coach, gym and partners hold more.

    let dustin cheat as much as conor did, and you have a different fight ...

    conor would ve been submitted in the second round by kimura, never forget the 19 cheating attempts when you talk about conor's poor performance.

    Dustin at least rocked the dude, almost subbed him and never had to cheat once.
