Joe Daddy Gets Belted Before Florian Fight

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Heading into an important fight at UFC 91 – a fight that should boost the winner into title contention – Joe “Daddy” Stevenson got a big boost from his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor over the weekend. Robert Drysdale awarded Stevenson his black belt on Saturday.

Both Stevenson and Florian have only one loss since their respective moves into the UFC’s lightweight division. Stevenson’s only loss was at the hands of current lightweight champion B.J. Penn, while Florian’s was to former champ Sean Sherk.

The winner is likely to get a shot at the title once B.J. Penn is done with his mega-fight against Georges St. Pierre on Super Bowl weekend.
