With only six days to go before his Lightweight match-up with probably #1 contender, Kenny Florian, Joe Stevenson has just gotten his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt from Robert Drysdale. Stevenson who has been known for his relentless style as well as his wrestling, now has a very formidable background in Jiu-Jitsu.
Drysdale is one of the most respected BJJ practitioners in the world. He is now testing his skill and seeing how it translates into the world of MMA.
Stevenson is looking to get back into title contention after he lost an opportunity at UFC 80 when he was submitted by BJ Penn to crown a new Lightweight champion after Sean Sherk had been stripped of the title.
