I have a blackbelt in "Sensei Daves Discount Ninjitsu", and as soon as i get my blackbelt on this message board I'm right there with Machida.
Anderson has a blackbelt in judo/bjj/taekwondo i believe
Then you get noobs like Jon Jones who is a white belt in bjj
But in all seriousness i think alot like jon do no gi and come from wrestling black belts so even though there blackbelt level in there discplines they dont have belts in them arts
There's a lot, but here's a few of the better known names.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogeuira, BB in Judo and BJJ
Fabricio Werdum, BB in Judo, BJJ and Muay Thai
Chris Weidman is a BJJ black belt and a division 1 all-American wrestler
Gunnar Nelson - karate & bjj
I think that's a fair assessment.
With all due respect, becoming a D1 wrestler is a lot harder than getting a black belt in Judo.
Also, Benson Henderson has a black belt in TKD and BJJ.
Machida, Jacare, GSP
