My funny interaction with Chris Holmes and Frank Caracci
So I saw a video on youtube of Frank Caracci's UFC 18 fight in which he lost (it was obviously many many years ago). Some of the comments were saying Frank Caracci was a BJJ black belt and him losing proves that BJJ sucks etc. You know what youtube comments are like right? So I googled around and saw on Frank's bio page that he is a BJJ black belt (now), but I thought that back in 1999 he probably wasn't, so in order to correct the good people of youtube I decided to find out when Frank got his BJJ black belt. I found out he and Chris Holmes had both started BJJ at the same time and as I couldn't find Frank's email I decided to email Chris to ask him when Frank was given his BJJ black. For the record, I never doubted it, just wanted to find out the timeline, so people wouldn't hate on Frank. I got some funny and revealing email so I thought I'd post them here. Its really quite ironic that I started out trying to defend Frank but now I feel like hes a bit of an asshole, along with that Chris friend of his. So anyway, heres the screenshots. Might give some of you a laugh and an insight into the minds of two BJJ black belts that represent Carlos Machado and his school.
I don't know what a 'nola BJJ fag' is. Maybe someone on here can inform me?
Out of nowhere I get an email from Frank now, which is fine, now I can hear from the great humble man himself:
I didn't reply to the last one but about half an hour later this arrived in my inbox:
Anyways, hope you had a laugh. Disappointing that Frank gets this offended over something so small as someone taking an interest in his career. Hope I didn't come off as 'rerartwd'.

Lol, he is a little defensive, isn't he?!
Anyway, found a video of Mr Caracci receiving his black belt from Carlos Machado on the La Martial Arts Academy Facebook page. It was posted on 17 March 2014:

Ah thats a nice vid. Good for him. I had heard on another forum that he had been working very hard on his bjj so I guess it paid off.

Those guys are pretty touch, IMO. Maybe they have had some bad experiences regarding their rank qualifications in the past.

I have met a wealthy Carlos machado 4 Stripe Brown belt. I think I know why they are so defensive. I would have to meet more of them to tell for sure.
