This belt was given to me by my Professor @victorestimagb. He knew what I was after, he knew who I was, he knew when the time was right, he just knew. I follow his lead and he is an excellent example. Thank you for believing in me. Thanks to my coach @zangado1 and my teammates. Thanks to my students who have followed me through this. Thanks to @graemefinneran1 for listening, guiding and being a true friend. Thanks to @braulioestima for just being you!! Most importantly thanks to @carmafish, you are the rock for which I am building everything. If you are seeing this thanks for your support. #graciebarra#gb72#stormkimonos#jiujitsuforeveryone#bjj#brazilianjiujitsu#gbnottingham#purplebelt#promoted#livingmydream#family
Thank you @fightbookmma, I truly am still blown away by this incredible award. When I started this journey many years ago I felt the exact same way then as I do today in that this is my passion, my love and my dream. I eat and sleep Mixed Martial Arts and have been studying the arts in one form or another for most of my life. I have been absolutely hooked since the first UFC with Royce Gracie shocking the world and decisively winning every fight as the smallest competitor. Graduating with a Communications degree from UC Davis I set my sights for a career in MMA and had no idea where I would be today but I knew that I had to be prepared when I got there. That meant that I had to be fluent in all aspects of broadcasting and I have been working towards this goal ever since. So after years of doing what I love in every facet of the game it’s so nice to receive this award and celebrate it with my Brave Combat Federation family and all those super talented friends and fighters that I have worked with in the past. Thank you HH @khaled_hamad_alkhalifa and @thehawkshahid for giving me the platform to do what I do and to entertain, motivate and INSPIRE. This Award is for all of us in mixed martial arts to celebrate together as a sign of how far we’ve come, And we’ve only just begun! Thank you again a Fightbook MMA and all of my friends that have supported me from day one and here’s to an incredible 2018 together!
Awesome night of training tonight with these guys (plus one more who is scared of a camera 🎥). Bootcamp at 6am this morning, followed by an hour and a half of drills and then 7 x 7 minute rounds of rolling. Were officially 142 days away from worlds and i cannot be more excited.
