Anthony Pettis Submitted Benson Henderson As A Blue Belt
There are black belts and then there are black belts’
Famous words from UFC commentator Joe Rogan who himself happens to hold a black belt rank in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Former UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, also holds a black belt in brazilian Jiu Jitsu and in his latest outing at UFC 164 he adorned his shorts with a black belt graphic to remind everyone.
Which is why, some may find it surprising to learn that the new champ, Anthony Pettis, submitted him as a low ranking blue belt.

Anthony Pettis’ coach just told me he’ll promote the UFC champ to purple belt in jiu-jitsu next week. Yes, a blue belt submitted Henderson.
Makes Pettis' sub on Bendo that much more impressive.
Edit; if a mod can fix the title that would be awesome. didnt realize it had the "more at h" part
