Happy birthday to @mattserrabjj ! The man who paved the way for all Long Island fighters including myself. Showed us that being a world champion could be a reality. Matt’s school was the first martial arts school I stepped in when I started to get interested in fighting. Without him I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have started a career in fighting. Also a funny little side note is I was crazy starstruck when I first met Matt! 1st famous person I ever met lol. Matt is an amazing instructor who has helped me technically as well as mentally in so many ways. He is the funniest guy I know who always has me dying laughing when I’m with him. Great role model and family man!
