Long Island MMA and Fitness Center would like to thank http://www.mmahq.com for hooking up Frank Sforza with a Black Japanese Classic Isami Kimono (As seen with Frank in the above picture). Frank has recently become an internet cult phenomenon on their website (if you haven’t been following the forum there, check it out). Known as Frank “The White Belt”, Frank’s colorful personality that we all know and love at the gym has even gotten him his own FaceBook fan page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Frank-The-White-Belt/156467197746421
