    I don't know if he got shitcanned but when St. Pierre fought Serra Renzo said that him and the academy would support Serra for the fight.

    Jon Olav Einemo won the 88-98 kg class in ADCC back in '03, beating Roger Gracie among others, and I'm pretty sure he was a blue (!) belt at the time.

    I don't think Ricco was a black belt when he won ADCC.

    Nevermind ... he was a blue belt in '01, so it was probably purple in '03.

    Last I checked, GSP was a purple and I hear he's training bjj regular as opposed to just the mma aspect of it.

    winning adcc doesn't mean that you should be a black belt. Let's face it, before he went to ATT he was a wrestler who knew submissions. He knew enough bjj to not get tapped. He even said in an interview once that his game really changed to a "truer" bjj game.
