Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson, once told the mixed martial arts (MMA) media that he would rather have his black belt from famed submission specialist Eddie Bravo than a “tarnished” strap from the world’s largest combat sports promotion.

Fast-forward one year and now he has both.

“The day I got back to Jean Jacques Academy after 2003 ADCC, he gave me the black belt off his waist,” Bravo wrote on Instagram. “Tonight, I gave it to Tony Ferguson.”

He armbared Rickson Gracie?

That was really cool of Eddie though. That belt must mean the world to him. To give it to one of his students is really special.

Tony kissed the belt after Eddie pulled it from his ass. Quite a ceremony.

I must have missed that part. Who's ass was it pulled from?
