Being a Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Doesn’t Mean What It Used To

(Props: Rob Hustle on the UG)

Remember when identifying yourself as a karate black belt used to mean something, back before MMA came along and changed all that and way back before Lyoto Machida came along and changed it again?  Well, years from now we will look back on this moment from NBC’s "I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" and think to ourselves, ‘Now that was the exact moment when the public lost respect for the jiu-jitsu black belt.’ 

Yeah, that’s the same twirpy Spencer Pratt kid from the world’s worst MMA rap video, and now he’s on this celebreality show whose concept is still a mystery me, much like Spencer’s fame.  Notice that he’s offering his jiu-jitsu bona fides in response to a question about whether his "ruck is wet," so he deserves the open mockery he receives. 

Dude, when you’re getting laughed at by Stephen Baldwin, that’s when you know you’ve hit bottom.  What a shame he had to take jiu-jitsu down with him.  It’s thanks to jackasses like Spencer that Marcelo Garcia can’t even sound cool when he talks to chicks in bars anymore.

I trained there on a few occasions for different lengths of time, and I noticed that there is a very nonchalant attitude towards the training there. It only seems to rely on Rickson's "mystique" to keep the place running.

Otherwise the place just feel like a stable of dudes for Kron to pick apart, without there being any real technical training or sharing of knowledge. Also there are a lot of super aggro rich kids from the palisades and other wealthy neighborhoods in west la that act like total douches there.

And all of their guys (white/blue belts) just got destroyed at the World Championships today.

But, this is all a matter of personal opinion, and you may love the school.

No offense if you train there man, I just never liked it there, and am really a lot happier since I left.

Happy training man.

If they throw up a clip of Baldwin throwing a triangle on his ass, let us know.

Our boy Ben here ended this entry with this little Gem.

"It's thanks to jackasses like Spencer that Marcelo Garcia can't even sound cool when he talks to chicks in bars anymore."

I always love it when folks give this underapreciated genius some attention. I mean, CP could have gone with the More Topical Damien Maia, or even Frank Mir, But By picking a less famous (AND better IMHO) Garcia, It's A) Funnier B) Some recognition to a Cat who deserves it.

John Salley would beat his ass.

Lou Diamond Phillips would beat his ass.

Spencer is a lying sack of shit. He's a purple belt that only got the damn thing because he takes a bunch of private$$$ from Kevin "I can't rap worth a fuck" Casey. I trained with him at Rickson's, which is a shit school by the way, and white and blue belts, myself (blue belt) included were tapping him out. Fuck this ass clown!

Marcelo Garcia is a God damned Beast and Doesn't get enough love anywhere. Everyone he rolls with looks like a damn noob. Even if they win. (Lookin at you Jacare.)

i feel sorry for him... douche baggery to the max.

ArmFarmer- June 4, 2009 at 5:08 am
Everything that occurrs between the 15 and 20 seond mark.. WHAT THE FUCK

I hate that some people can remain famous purely on their doucheyness. People love to hate I guess which unfortunately keeps retards like this in the spot light.
MIRJITSU- June 4, 2009 at 4:59 am
I've been doing Jiu Jitsu for almost 6 months. I would like to formally challenge Spencer's bullshit jiu jitsu ability!!
T BONE- June 3, 2009 at 10:26 pm
so i'm guessing this dude is famous? he's obviously not a fighter wat'd he do? he looks like the nerdy kid at school that would try n impress ppl by saying he does judo when he's taken 1 class lol.
CanadianGreaser- June 3, 2009 at 9:34 pm
I'd pay to kick this motherfucker in the ball sack.
Meohfumado- June 3, 2009 at 7:26 pm
This douche is famous why?

Dream Fight ** Spencer Pratt vs Kimbo Slice to get into the house for TUF 10.**

I think we should all group together for the greater good of MMA and the world and ambush this spencer homo IRL and beat him within an inch of his life.

Then we'll beat him an inch past his life and continue stomping on him until we all have this goof's brains lodged in our shoes.

Who's In??

To sum this pratt business up the world would be a better place if he was dead.
Cookie Monster- June 3, 2009 at 5:51 pm
pratt has lost his god damned mind. he looks borderline albino with that crazy shit on his face. If he is a black belt then so am i. BLACK BELTS FOR EVERYONE!
T1- June 3, 2009 at 5:30 pm
Pratt is NOT a blackbelt.

He got promoted to purple belt by his friend (who promoted himself to black belt) (and got kicked out of Ricksons thus cause).

So, if anything -> he's a blue (which nobody knows for sure if he even was one)

Check Sherdog's grappling forum for 5 threads on said subject.

That guy is fuckin' pathetic.

It used to be that guys talked like that about their black belts in Tae Kwon Do. Now they gotta drag down BJJ?

Ya know what...I'll go out on a limb and say BULLSHIT on his black belt. I know he rolls, but last I heard, he was blue belt.

You want a Gracie-related black belt in BJJ? If it's a legit school, expect to wait at least 10 years.

I only have a blue belt. I'd take him on. Not boastin', just sayin'. I have a hard time being scared of a guy named 'Spencer'...

unless he's...

SPENCER FOR HIRE! sister loved that show. I don't know why.

Top UFC welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (12-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) will indeed meet returning UFC veteran Frank Trigg (19-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) at UFC 103 in Dallas.
