Pan 2012 Training
Gracie Humaita Victory MMA San Diego
Training for the Pan 2012 has been going strong at Gracie Humaita- Victory MMA in San Diego. Under the watchful eyes of head instructor and UFC fighter Fabricio “Morango” Camoes. This past Wednesday however they took a break from training to correct a situation and do a long, long, long overdue promotion of one of their finest: Brian “Sarge”. Because “Sarge” mostly trains and teaches the No-Gi classes at Victory and because he is such a humble “monster” on the mats, Sarge spent 12 years in his last belt! Only recently everyone started to wonder about his rank and plans were made for correcting the “mistake”.
Before the watchful eyes of his BJJ class and his instructors Royler Gracie, Fabricio “Morango” and long time friend and partner Jocko Willink (Dean Lister was not present because he is away training UFC fighter Alan Belcher), “Sarge” was awarded his overdue Black Belt!
