    Why is this even news?
    Im not even referring to this post individually but the fact that many a times we are made aware of BJJ blue belt promotions as some kind of milestone.

    Isnt Blue Belt in Brazilian JuJutsu the one right after white?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_Jiu-Jitsu
    In Judo, the blue is right before brown so its a much more advanced stage of a judoka’s development..

    So isnt this similar to saying “Hey, so-and-so received finally received his judo yellow belt!”
    Its a nice accomplishment and all but I dont think its a significant news for an MMA fighter as it is for a 6 year old who usually knows enough for their first belt promotion which consists of the ukemi, a handful of newaza and about two handfuls of nage-waza.

    What am I missing here?
