The art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a key element of any mixed martial artist’s arsenal in the Octagon. Some though, have taken their development higher than others, and in September and October, a select group of fighters from the UFC and WEC have seen promotions in their discipline.

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre heads up this distinguished list, as he recently received his black belt from Bruno Fernandes. Also entering this select club is welterweight contender Dustin Hazelett, who received his black belt from Jorge Gurgel in September, and WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres, who received his black belt from Carlson Gracie Jr., also in September.

Being promoted from blue belt to purple belt is welterweight prospect Kevin Burns, who received his new belt from Carlos Henrique "Caique" Elias last month.

Congratulations to all of these groundfighting standouts.
