    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?
    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?
