WEC featherweight contender Leonard Garcia got a nice pre-Christmas present when he last arrived at Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico: a fresh brown belt.

To clarify, Garcia says it’s a brown belt in jiu-jitsu. He had been a purple belt for one and a half years, and had all the stripes to prove it.

Clay Pittman, a third degree black belt under Carlos Machado, and Greg Jackson, founder of Jackson’s MMA, awarded the advancement to Garcia.

“I had this big certificate waiting for me when I got there,” Garcia said. “That was a real honor.”

Garcia will definitely put his belt to the test should he face new WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown in 2009.
