The Long Island native. They are a unique species, a subset of humanity molded by their proximity to the biggest metropolitan area in the United States and the fact that they don’t quite belong in that big metropolitan area.

They talk funny. They act funny. The drive around in funny cars and eat funny things. And when you surprise them when they are fast asleep, they react in much the same way as someone would if you had set them on fire.

Behold, the quintessential Long Island native Matt Serra, a former UFC champ and now trainer to the elite. His response when poked with a figurative stick is… well… typical.

Don’t watch if you have delicate ears.

CAUTION EXPLICIT LANGUAGE!!! On the road filming with Matt Serra. Don’t fall asleep! @mattserrabjj
