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.

Lauzon, Lundell

Lauzon showing off his BROWN PRIDE!

Congrats. If i trained in the gi part-time, i'd be a 15 year white belt.

I did too until he posted in one of the "best grapplers that aren't black belts" threads that he was purple. Obviously he'd be a black belt in "mma grappling."

Same..I thought for sure he was a long time brown or black belt.  Congrats. Nice to see your coach makes the students earn their belts so they have value.

Congrats Joe, had no idea/i can't believe you were still a purple thought you were a black for sure.

There seems to be loads of black belts in the UFC isn't Rashad a black belt? yet Joe until now was purple.

I would of thought Joe was better gi and nogi than 95% of the ufc.

Some instructors dont like to promote unless you train in gi also. Sucks but hey. That belt doesnt hand out assbeatings the person does. Oh yea and some of those guys in the UFC with black belts arent "black belts".
