supposedly (in 2001) - iirc it was to return the favour to Feitosa who had gifted Renzo a quick tap win in the 2000 semi finals

Craig Kukuk was trained mostly by Rorion but awarded his Black belt by Royler not Renzo. He was the first American Black belt and was awarded it in 1992.

Awesome accomplishment, congrats to Matt Serra. Helps me to believe I will one day get that elusive blue belt.

That is a fucking crazy amount of dedication. The kind 99% of the worlds population would never be able to dedicate to something so passionately. Now as awesome as that is, I am still waiting for Matt to drop his baby weight and get his ass back in action!

I think by knocking out GSP he should get the strip!
