An IBJJF Rule Change I Like (!!!)

Hell has frozen over.
Rule implementation often dilutes the sport and just leads to different styles which game the system (ala Judo, wrestling et cetera) but this one from the IBJJF is legit:

"Starting in 2013, athletes with experience in wrestling at the University level in the USA or with a professional career in MMA cannot subscribe to compete as a white belt. Besides the USA, wrestling competitors with experience in National tournaments around the world are also restricted from competing as white belts."
