saw this on another forum, i really don't know what to say
did that black belt just promote himself or something? Even if he was practicing, that shit was light. Almost TOO light. Carlos Jr needs to demote his ass. Those blues were good though.
looked like he was just going easy with everyone
somebody who knows portugese translate please
that's not Portuguese, that's just some broken down English.
I am going to go ahead and guess that he was purposly only performing at the level of the people he was going with
And I am also guess that, from what I could hear, he was trying to show that just because someone is wearing a belt higher than theirs that it doesnt always mean they are going to lose
I think I know that guy.
I have never experienced a black belt that will purposely drop down to fight at the level of a student....Is this common and I am out of the loop.....
It honestly doesn't look like he's doing everything he could, like he's being a bit resistant, but not enough to stop him. I've rolled with a purple who had to hold back on me was more embarrassing than anything. I could fuck up a lot of people just by using my weight when I roll, but I hold back and focus on technique more than just controlling/tiring them with weight.
Alright, my coaches (both black belts) go light with me from time to time, rolling at or just above my level and rarely letting me catch them. In these moments, it's painfully obvious and they have a smooth calm about their grappling. It doesn't look like this guy's going hard, but it sure doesn't look like he's calm as can be.
There was a HUGE sherdog thread on this, I never read through it all but everyone was dogging on that black guy and said he wasn't legit or something. Could be wrong, need someone else to verify.
I believe they said he said he was a black belt in Judo also or something
could be a judo BB
No way, did you see his stance? NO Judo guy hunches over like that and has shitty gripping like that, he basically let the guy reach over to grab his back, that would never happen to a decent Judo BB against some white/blue BJJ guy standing up.
yeah then id ont know
ive met a couple bjj black belts that genuinely sucked
I don't go on sherdog and that is why. I don't get why we need to sit here speculate and put judgments on something we don't know the whole story on. It's very typical OT, but you guys are a lot more knowledgeable then those clowns.
Their grappling forum is pretty legit, a lot less trolling and they have some good threads there.
theres some good guys on sherdog grappling forum
Oh really? I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to following other MMA forums. If you and chechen say so then I believe it. I just don't know what is going on in that video, there could be a lot of reasons behind it, all we can really do is speculate. Let me know if those guys find the real story behind it though I am curious also lololol. God I'm such a hypocrite.
Why is this video either funny or sad?
well if the sparring is legit and they are actually going at it, it would be funny because a black belt just got subbed by like 6 blue belts, and it would be sad that there is a guy out there who got a black belt and just got subbed by 6 blue belts.
legitimacy of the video is disputed though, should've read the thread from the forum before reposting it here i guess
hahah, nah, its cool man, its the internet, no one needs to take anything too seriously on here.
