UFC middleweight king Chris Weidman received his black belt last night from Renzo Gracie and Matt Serra. Yup, that pretty much guarantees that UFC 187 opponent Vitor Belfort is a dead man.
Ha, just kidding.
I mean, yeah, Weidman is going to beat Belfort probably to death, but the color of the belt Weidman wears with his gi has very little to do with it. After all, the American has smashed no less than four Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts in the cage already. He even effectively ended the career of one of them (*cough* Anderson Silva *cough*). But hey, the symbol of him being bestowed such an honor in a particular aspect of fighting is pretty nice.
