Jon Jones Earns BJJ Purple Belt From Gracie Barra

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is officially a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Jones was promoted by Gracie Barra’s Roberto Alencar — a four-time No-Gi World Champion. The promotion comes over two years after Jones earned his BJJ blue belt.

I haven’t felt this honored in a really long time. Thank you @graciebarra

In addition to promoting Jones, Alencar also promoted Bellator MMA fighter Aaron Pico to blue belt.

“Earned not given. Thank you @tussagb for blue belt.”
