"When it comes to belts and rank, I don't care what belt I am, I don't care what rank I am," Frank told Free Roll Radio Show in 2010. "I'm proud that I've achieved high ranks through some great instructors around the world, but ultimately the mat doesn't lie. When you're out there and you're in the cage, or you're on your own floor, that doesn't lie."
He also gushed about his fans, adding, "I've got a lot of fans, but I say friends, because every time I meet a fan somewhere around the world, I don't consider them a fan, I consider them as a friend. I got thousands of friends around the world that I'm nice to. I've never said no to one autograph, no matter how bad of a mood I was in. I always wanted to make their day and talk to them and create friends instead of just fans."
