UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez has never been known for his submissions in the octagon, but it’s hard to deny that he has an exceptionally solid ground game. That was finally recognized this past weekend when Velasquez received his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt from the American Kickboxing Academy.

Additionally, UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold was also promoted to black belt, while heavyweight Daniel Cormier was promoted to brown.
