Sorry, what?

He's never been submitted, a former ADCC medalist came pretty close but couldn't get it done and ended up getting submitted himself later on. He also caught another black belt in Lyoto Machida and choked him out on the feet, not exactly amateur-level stuff. How all of that equates to a "clear weakness for BJJ" baffles me.
