Rolles gave the black belt to Rashad Evans. Besides he had never trained with gi, he won the black belt of No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu. What do you think about this graduation?
Each one gives the belt for a reason, who am I to criticize who’s giving a belt? The guy has to know something about self defense, about Jiu-Jitsu, ground, passing a guard... He can’t only be a tough guy, because he doesn’t represent the top of Jiu-Jitsu. Rashad can use any belt, he’s a born fighter, he trains. Rolles gave it, but in my gym he would have to train with gi .But I don’t contest it.
