Ruben is a small 10 year old with a passion for jui-jitsu. He trains out of Alan Belcher MMA Club in D'Iberville, Mississippi. He is seriously a beast on the mats. Since beginning MMA training his grades in school have improved immensely. He went from C's and D's to all A's and B's. He trains between 5 and 7 days a week. If it were up to him he would live at the gym. He wants to be the best, and his dream for the future is to become a UFC champ. He is now a yellow/black belt in BJJ. He is also a Jr Advanced Brown belt under Master Alan Belcher's kids MMA program.
