Frankie Edgar Gets Black Belt from Ricardo Almeida

Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar may no longer have UFC gold around his waist, but he does have some newly minted black gold.

Edgar was recently awarded his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt from Ricardo Almeida, who is a UFC veteran and third-degree black belt under Renzo Gracie.

Congratulations to Frankie Edgar on his promotion.
