If I'm informed right, Dos Santos received his black belt only a couple of weeks ago. I'm always a bit sceptical with established UFC fighters receiving their black belt. You never know whether it's really earned, because of technical mastery or whether it's earned for being a successful fighter (which in Dos Santos case doesn't tell that much about his BJJ skills as he mainly boxes)

In his open grappling workout with Machida a couple of months ago, his movements don't look that fluid like a real black belt should look like.



So until he showcases some good grappling in actual fights, I keep my doubts about his BJJ.
