Ben Saunders receives his BJJ brown belt:
"Ben started training in the gi in 2003. He received his blue belt in 2005 from Gracie Barra Orlando, his purple belt in January 2007, and his Brown Belt in 2010. He has met all the requirements (application of skill in sparring, technical knowledge and proficiency, training hours in the gi, history knowledge of BJJ and his lineage, etc..) to be a brown belt. On top of that, like our students who don't fight in the UFC, Ben formally tested in front Ricardo Liborio to seal the deal..."
