After GSP fought Hardy...I thought his BJJ blackbelt was gifted, Considering he had earned it 2 years prior 2 fighting Hardy..

Point of why I thought to make this thread is I was randomly reading about
Bully Beatdown the other day and started looking at fighters who'd been on the show and I came across this Tony Bonello guy whom I heard of but never seen fight.

I looked into the guy a little and learned he was a third degree black belt in BJJ and his credentials were as followed.

Carlos Gracie’s 2008 American National Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Championships Gold Medalist (Two times)- One gold medal in the Gi & 1 gold medal in the No-Gi division. Notable is that both gold medals were uncontested, as Tony was the only entrant in each division


Carlos Gracie’s 2008 No-Gi Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Senior Black Belt World Championships Silver Medalist
Carlos Gracie’s 2009 No-Gi Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Senior Black Belt World Championships Silver Medalist- Notable is that there was only one other entrant each year in his division, and thus one match to determine gold and silver .

When I saw thees'e credentials I started laughing to myself .
