    He's probably also a white belt at judo. So what?

    He's a white belt in BJJ but an advanced grappler

    Lots of great MMA fighters who are outstanding grapplers don't have formal ranks in BJJ. No big deal

    BJJ practitioners are about 100x more common and it's used much more than judo in MMA.

    Let's use some common sense here.

    Kinda funny how a guy like rogan would probably submit jones in a bjj match but in an actual fight jones would destroy him badly, funny how back when royce gracie was dominating the scene people thought that bjj was the is all end all martial art.

    Don't really see what this is proving. He comes from a wrestling base is an all around compotent grappler. Credentials really don't mean much when you have the skill to back it up.
