Brandon Moreno has just been promoted to black belt in BJJ after spending over sixteen years training in the sport and using it to great effect in his MMA career so far. Moreno announced the news of receiving his final belt promotion at Entram Jiu Jitsu in Tijuana in a post on his official Instagram account. The leveling up comes after he reached the highest point of his career back at UFC 256, where he took the reigning UFC Flyweight World Champion Dieveson Figueiredo to a Majority Draw after five phenomenal rounds of action.
Moreno was unbeaten in his last five fights leading up to that title opportunity and owned an impressive 18-5-1 record overall, including 10 submission wins. The monumental effort earned Moreno “Fight of the Night” honors and should really lead up to a rematch between him and Figueiredo in order to determine the winner once and for all.
The announcement Brandon Moreno made of receiving his black belt, roughly translated:
“When this started I didn’t even know how far I was going to go, I really only did it and I still do it for the love of this beautiful sport, but one of the goals was to become a black belt and after 15 years I got my black belt in BJJ, I will not deny that it feels very nice and very badass thanks teacher @raul_entram for trusting me from the beginning and all my @entram_gym team for always pushing me to move forward”
