IBJJF Rules Question/Rafa Mendes?

How did Rafa get around not having a red or white rank sleeve on his belt?

Also, Giani looks like the karate kid.

I also thought new rules said if it's a double guard pull and no advancement after 20 seconds, they get stood back up and both get a penalty. I don't think there was really any advancement within 20s in that fight??

No official new rules yet

and it would've prolly took rafael longer to add white tape and take it off again later

I THINK the rank sleeve thing only applies for Pan Ams and Worlds. Any other comp and its all good.
