    One of my coaches, Matt Arroyo, who was on TUF 6, will be awarded his black belt in 2 days from Rob Kahn who is the first person in the USA to get his black belt from Royce Gracie.

    Is he still with the UFC? He had two losses in a row and hasn't fought in nearly a year...

    He was, after 2 losses he was let go...he's kept quiet for the last year while opening another "branch" of Gracie Tampa. He'll be back soon though.

    Yeah he really is...other than our coach Rob Kahn, he's the best grappler I've ever rolled with!

    No, but Rob Kahn doesn't just pass out belts. So when he gives someone a black belt, I thought it Cage worthy.

    Your coach must be a fantastic grappler then, congrats to him if that's the case. And yes, Allen trains with us as well. Allen was the first guy from our camp to get on to TUF, since then we've had a guy in every season except the US vs UK season. Great camp...

    i think he was joshing you for congratulating someone who isnt going to read it versus just creating a thread, "matt arroyo got his bjj bb"
