Today was the 2nd most overdue black belt promotion that I know! Alex Serdyukov was an original Apex team member and got his brown belt the day I got my purple belt — December 13, 2006. Almost 11 years ago! He was a champion in the WEC back in 2005 and has beaten my ass MANY times during the Apex days, lol. He was promoted by another Apex original — Jason Bukich. I could not be happier about him finally being promoted and being yet another black belt that came from Apex!
