    Even if he is not, I bet he subs alot off black belts.

    He doesn't hold a belt but Rogan has said that he would be equivalent to a black belt

    They called him a black belt before, but last weekend they changed it.

    Thats not necessarily true... who you earn your belt from has much to do with it.

    He's probably a brown belt in terms of no gi skill at the very least. Needless to say, I did not expect to see Donald Cerrone reversing Myles Jury after an omoplata attempt from guard. His back control proved nice as well; Jury wasn't going anywhere until the bell rang.
