Today in a small informal ceremony in Las Vegas, UFC lightweight Joe Lauzon earned his Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt from Ricky Lundell. Lundell himself is a black belt under Pedro Sauer and has been Lauzon's BJJ coach for the past several years.
Lauzon admittedly doesn't train in the gi as much as he should, as he is generally in preperation for a fight, but has shown off his high level grappling skill since debuting in the UFC in 2006.
Lauzon announced the achievment tonight on his Facebook.
