Drago Earns Balck Belt from Serra BJJ

Hats off to UFC middleweight Pete "Drago" Sell, who recently earned his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt from Matt and Nick Serra.

One thing about Drago that's puzzled me for the past few years is that despite being a strong, talented grappler, he very often shows a propensity to stand and trade (i.e. his fights against Quarry - both times - and Scott Smith), and it doesn't seem to be working out for him.

If you want to talk about a guy "getting caught," Drago is the prime example. He had Scott Smith all but knocked out, and he seemed to be getting the better of the stand-up exchanges against Nate Quarry (the second time around) before being dropped. Them's the breaks.
