    It is a little odd. Obviously rinaldi is a great grappler both wrestling and submission grappling but lets not forget that abu dhabi is no gi. Bjj purists would probably be questionable of someone getting a brown belt in that short of a time span especially a wrestler who did well in no gi competitions.

    hahaha-that was the first thing that came to mind, "They must not test at these tournaments"

    In fact I know they dont cause I was at teh first US Nationals for Grappling and I was talking to a guy that won it and I asked him if he was going to Worlds and he said no cause he couldn't pass the drug test and was not going to give up smoking weed. Later i saw that he went and I asked him about it and he said they never tested him, just let him go.

    Yet we lose world champions in the sport of wrestling for the same things???
