You could also point to his D'arce choke victory over Tom Lawlor and his standing guillotine chokes as being mere lucky breaks and not indicative of any "real" submission skills.
But I mean what's more important his accomplishments or his belt.
Um, I know you are just talking out of your ass. But you do know that he was praised for going the distance and doing solid vs. Galvao on little formal BJJ training right. He didn't actually BEAT him.
