    And speaking of Keenan, to any interested in his online program, they're offering a free month trial in celebration of his Euros showing.

    Edit: Forgot to add offer expires today (Jan. 27) at 11:59pm PST

    Gordon Ryan just signed up for the Sub Stars event Feb 21st in Miami. My boy Alex already had Cyborg, Garry Tonon, Lovato Jr, Vagner, Rumble Johnson, Nicky Rod, and others signed up for this. This event is going to be sick.

    I'm not sure they're done yet, if his proposed headliner he mentioned to me before happens, it'll be talked about a lot

    I may be doing the streaming for Sub Stars had a conversation with Alex about it while at JitzKings. Ffion is a killer. Kasai is this weekend and should be a good time. May be heading out there to corner Combs in a last minute match

    I'm looking forward to your next event.... Let me know if you need some old man to battle other old men (if Kevin isn't available... I joked with Kevin at a tournament a couple of months ago, that him and I may be the token Florida State "mid 40's and up" guys here :tearsofjoy:)

    Yes. I'm guessing Poirier is there for name recognition for casuals. I don't see him standing much chance against Tonon.

    Curtis Blaydes and Anthony Johnson are competing in the sumo tournament?

    This event is going to give some others a run for their money.

    I only read results.
    What happened to Vinny? Hopefully he doesn't pull out of Submission Underground.

    I like the grand prix idea so I was bummed to miss it.

    Short documentary on blind grappler Clinton Terry. It's called "Stubborn". Super inspirational stuff!



    The dude that made the documentary, Sam Martin, has also started a fundraiser to raisey money to help send Terry and his family to the World Masters this year.

    Here's Roger in his division and the absolute finals of 2007. He's easily my choice for greatest gi competitor.
