    Ive seen it before where a jiujitsu trainer gives their student a black belt after a fight.

    But I never knew Din was a BJJ master, is his black belt credible?

    Credible enough to submit the top contender.

    He submitted someone in an mma title fight.
    As far as i'm concerned that BB is a lot more legit that the hundreds gracie/machado celebrity black belts given out of interest ( like joe rogan's for example )

    Tyron trains at ATT and din is a black belt under Ricardo Liborio so he's legit, and even if Din didn't promote him Ricardo can.

    I'm sure it's legit. Tyron's been doing BJJ for 13 fucking years for god's sake. Good for him, must of felt great to get it in that way. Just finished his first fight by submission in awhile and it was to a guy many thought was suppose to beat him. That's a real life movie moment right there. You can't script it any better.

    Rogan's bb is very "legit". Bravo doesn't simply hand them out undeservingly. That's saying a lot coming from me because I can't stand Bravo.
