    I'm watching his fight against Wilson Gouveia. Joe Rogan said "Wilson's a black belt, so Keith doesn't want to go to the ground with him." Then Mike cut in, "But so is Keith." I tried looking this up, but couldn't find anything about it.

    Granted there are many who practice nogi exclusively / predominantly and still are ranked in BJJ (mma fighters who started BJJ to fight MMA). . . but generally when someone is said to have a BJJ black belt (like wilson or aurelio or florian or gonzaga or werdum or bj or well you get the idea) they were a BJJ guy (with a Gi) who is now transitioning into MMA and nogi.
