    Anderson has a blackbelt in judo/bjj/taekwondo i believe

    Then you get noobs like Jon Jones who is a white belt in 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.
