John Kavanagh (McGregor's coach) is a 3rd degree black belt. Has he better BJJ than Cesar?

    That's almost Demian Maia level and better than Shields :O
    Just wondering is Cesar also a 3rd degree black belt?
    Does Conor learn from the better BJJ teacher?

    Cesar would be higher because he has been a BB longer. That's all degrees are, how long you've been a BB.

    The Conor haters are gonna come in here and say Conor and his Irish Edmund have no ground game. Matt Thornton is a legit BJJ guy and one of the first Americans to get his BJJ black belt.

    Cesar would fuck him up in a grappling match, so no his BJJ is not better.

    I bet Kavanagh is an amazing BJJ practitioner but it is impossible to tell who is better based on belts. Remember that not all belts are created equally.

    That's a good point.
     
  11. Degrees on a black belt are meaningless. They're given solely based on how long you've been a black belt, nothing to do with skill or knowledge.

    Yep. Direct descendant of Chris Haueter of the 'Dirty Dozen', one of the first 12 non-Brazilian blackbelts.
