Following Ray's impressive Gi competition, he was featured in former
WEC LW Champion Cory Cass's annual Fight Lab Submission Grappling
Tournament- held inTemecula California. Ray won Gold in the advanced
division, competing in both the 185lbs and 205lbs division. It was

bitter sweetness for Elbe, who after a day of competition was unable to
perfect the triple crown when he was submitted in the absolute finals
against WEC veteran/ Dan Henderson trained fighter Fernando Gonzalez.
