This past weekend, Lopez’s hard work in the mats finally paid off when he stood atop the podium at the Phoenix IBJJF Open.

Competing in the Masters 4 Blue Belt Light Division, Mario’s wife Courtney was there to cheer and inspire him to victory.

An Instagram post showed some impressive takedowns and guard passing from the long-time Hollywood star in his match. Once he bested his opponent, it was all smiles and cheers on the podium, taking gold home.

However, this was not Mario’s first-time winning gold at a tournament, but he admitted it would be his last time competing on his Radio show “On With Mario Lopez.” 

For a Hollywood star and someone who could do whatever they wish, it’s encouraging to see this caliber of person dedicate and spend the time on the mats to improve themselves instead of other avenues we see many stars take. This lifestyle has allowed him to train with some of the biggest names in the fighting world, such as Orlando Sanchez and Gordon Ryan, and even boxing at the legendary Wild Card Boxing Club!

We may not see Mario compete again, but he will for sure be staying on the mats for years to come and, maybe even a promotion soon with four stripes on his belt.
