Sorry if already posted, but I guess UGs (and other MMA siters) where right in questioning his bjj skills with the gi.

Renzo Gracies comments:
(http://graciefighter.com)

GF- Rashad Evans recently was promoted by Rolles Gracie to Blackbelt. Any thoughts?

Renzo- It was a recognition from Rolles that Rashad should compete in the highest categories of gi-less grappling competitions. In the Gi-less World Championships for example you cannot compete in the Blackbelt division no matter how long you've been grappling unless a certified instructor gives you a belt for that division. Can I say that Rashad has worked his way up in the correct belt order with a gi? Of course not and I don't think as a pro fighter he will be doing gi tournaments anytime soon. I differentiate between gi and gi-less and apparently Rolles found him ready for the belt in gi-less. I don't think you should give someone a belt in a locker room. Not sure if that was Rolles' idea.

Have you ever met the guy or do you even know who he is??  Renzo's the man and everytime I've met him he's been cool as fuck.  Crossing the line homie.

 I was 100% under the impression that belts were only given out if you trained in a gi. I mean whats the point of having a belt in jiu jitsu if you don't wear a gi? Oh yeah, that's right, that marketing thing I talked about the other day. Rogan says "Rashad has a blackbelt in BJJ". Average fan says "Oh shit, Rashad is dangerous".

King@queers, you need to shut the fuck up! At least Renzo has the balls to say straight up.

A younger generation Gracie selling out their craft to get he's name mentioned in the main event of a big tv-show? Say it aint so.

If Rashad isn't good enough to be a black belt, what does that say about the ATT black belt he dominated on the ground?

Let's not get carried away. I like Renzo, but he's done some pretty dastard things in the past. I can recall him stepping on the chest of the guy he beat way back in the day amongst other things.

Regardless, he is correct here. But WTF cares whether Rashad is good in a Gi? It's a useless skill if you want to put food on the table and have a bank account.

At least one voting system in the US works. I appreciate Renzo's candor. This answers lots of questions.
