QUICK TWITT | Anthony Pettis Submitted Benson Henderson As A Blue Belt


‘There are black belts and then there are black belts’

Famous words from UFC commentator Joe Rogan who himself happens to hold a black belt rank in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Former UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, also holds a black belt in brazilian Jiu Jitsu and in his latest outing at UFC 164 he adorned his shorts with a black belt graphic to remind everyone.

Which is why, some may find it surprising to learn that the new champ, Anthony Pettis, submitted him as a low ranking blue belt.

  1. Ray Reategui says:

    The Gracie family always told that in a fight the belt doesn’t matter

  2. Violent Marv says:

    Belts are purely for earner-ship, you put in enough hours in the gym and you earned the belt. Theirs great prestige in holding a black belt, but as we have seen it means fuck all in a fight. The belt wont fight for you, you cant throw it at someone and watch it tap them. At the end of the day it just holds up your pants or keeps your gi closed.

    Where did Benson get his BB?
