KOing some1 is different than subbing some1, for a white belt to say that about a black belt, one of shoguns level is ridiculous, its not the same thing, knockouts can come out of anywhere as long as you have power, subbing ppl takes skill and thats it, sure he can hurt shogun then tap him, but to say he can just tap him out...its like he doesnt respect BJJ
i see no reason why he cant just say ''i doubt i can tap him out, i will try though'' or say ''i wont tap him out but i will finish him''
many fighters admit to not being as good as another in a certain area, you think shogun would say ''sure ill out wrestle jones''...no, because he knows he cant, so what? doesnt mean he doesnt think he will win the fight
the statement wasnt disrespectful, it was ignorant...hes young...he'll learn
also...forrest wasnt a black belt but he was light years ahead of JBJ
