good news, I just solved it all (from an interview in the PhoenixNewTimes)
In the spirit of Caesar, he promoted himself through God's justification and the might of his sword.
"I study great warriors, great generals -- Caesar, Alexander the Great, Attila the Hun -- and I try to follow their way of thinking," Sarria says, pulling into the parking lot of a post office. "Because it's a war out there, just surviving. In this business, one bad show can wipe you out. You have to put so much money into each one."
Has anyone ever given anyone a black belt in mma training?...is there a more foolish title for a combat sport??? other than numbnuts...that would be pretty foolish too.
Sounds like business as usual out here. I swear things like this make Arizona seem like a video tape played at super slow speed. I go away for about 6 months, come back and find that nothing's really changed.
I hate to revive an old thread like this but here's the latest on Roland "I got my black belt from god" Sarria from a recent interview.
"Ghosts of the Desert"
It makes for some entertaining (although not always quite factual) reading. Roland comes off as the same babbling clown that he always was/is. He closed his gym sometime over the last year or so and shortly after this interview he sold Rage in the Cage. I doubt that he got much more than $10-15 thousand for it if that. I can't see how it could have currently been worth much more.
So ends the 18 year saga of Roland Sarria's Brausa Jiu Jitsu/Rage in the Cage "empire". I was around the scene since day one, it made for some interesting times and stories to say the least.
Yes sir, let's just say the place was "how do you say" full of interesting stories.
