    Rac****s aren't allowed to go higher than purple.

    where did you see that he is a purple belt? I know for the longest time he called himself a "no belt", meaning that although he trained BJJ every day for years, he was not moving up any formal ranking system.

    Why? What's wrong with rac****s?

    Edit: Why is that word censored? I typed the name of an animal that appears to be wearing a mask.

    Oftentimes people who train mostly no Gi BJJ don't have high belt ranks

    That's what Wikipedia, the compendium of all human knowledge, says.

    Belts mean nothing in MMA.

    Need proof?

    Jon Jones is a white belt in BJJ

    He doesn't train with a gi and there are no belt in no-gi. And besides, belts are here only to prevent your pants from falling down.

    Iv seen this as well. It's pretty mind boggling if true which I doubt. He's a black belt level at least in no gi and if there were belt rankings for MMA bjj he's black. Only gsot has out grappled and he's a phenomenal practicioner.

    He said he was a purple in one of his Q and A livestreams, it's because he trains no gi only

    The place I took submission grappling was a Kenpo place.. The guys there were high level grapplers with no belt in JJ. You can grapple without one. I think Frank Shamrock and Sakuraba proved that 15 years ago kiddies.

    Don't think he's been training with an instuctor who's allowed to grade him, doesn't mean anything though, he might just be very good at MMA jiujitsu but nothing special at stand alone BJJ.

    It was more Joe's gas tank that let him down against Gsot than his grappling.
