Frankie Edgar, Nick Catone Honored By Ricardo Almeida

Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar was recently awarded his black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu from Ricardo Almeida.

Edgar, who trains at Renzo Gracie Combat Team, and fellow UFC fighter Nick Catone were each honored by Almeida.

 

Edgar (16-4-1) is set to coach opposite BJ Penn on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. The two, who met twice at 155 pounds, will face each other at featherweight. “The Answer” won both meetings with Penn via decision in 2010.

Catone (9-4) is set to face Tom Watson in February at UFC 169.
