    Skip to 0:20 to see Weidman getting dominated on the mat by a brown belt.


    Obviously his pure grappling is not at a black belt level, so what makes his MMA grappling so efficient? Is it how he sets it up with strikes or is the level of competition just not that good? Luke Rockhold mentioned that he is fighting old men on the decline (Silva, Machida, Maia, Munoz). Maybe he's not too far off.

    Laranja isn't a "brown belt", he's an 11-stripe blackbelt and a 27-time Mundials Worlds Champion.

    He taught Hoger Gracie how to chokes.

    You should learn a little more before you talk stuffs.

    No shame in getting tapped by the greatest grappler ever. I heard from a reliable source Renato made Rickson cry once.

    Are you saying that his grappling has evolved drastically in the last two years?

    That's the same guy that tapped Eddie Bravo at his own gym though. Put him to sleep I think with a north south choke. So I don't think there's any shame in that.
