    If guys like Matt Hughes or Randy Couture, who obviously have black belt level jiu-jitsu, one day decided to throw a GI on and earn a black belt, how long would it take them?

    All depends on the instructor.

    How long until they could compete at Mundial level jiu jitsu? A long time..

    How long until an instructor would say "you are Matt Hughes - you are a great grappler with years of experience - here is your black belt" probably a year or two.

    i think matt hughes is closer to a black belt than couture.

    theyre both solid grapplers, but not black belts in jiu jitsu.

    Couture shut down Jacare playing top defensive game. Hardly ANYONE shuts down Jacare in pure, sport Jiu Jitsu.

    couture also outweighs jacare by ~40lbs.
    shut down!?!?!!?
    he sat in his guard & ran away from sub attempts the entire match.

    I doubt they train with gi's, so I still think it'd be a while. They're missing out on a lot of jiu jitsu by not training with gi's.
