Never heard of any of these, but it's cool to see this stuff. Interesting to see that's where TapOut took their idea from. Was their ever any claims of trademark infringement? I assume not.

MMAHAWK @MMAHAWK - you familiar with all of this?

Kazja is a legit crazy guy. I think he hears voices in his head and shit.

Hes been crying about Zuffa trade marking the octagon for YEARS.

He was the originator of the fixed fights. People could call a hotline and vote for who they want to win before the fight.

I remember Kage Kombat from the old FC Fighting magazine (the old newspaper... I remember getting VHS tapes from them and saw the old Kage Kombat and IVC ads..... You got a free bumper sticker every time you ordered).

I remember seeing Mat Rat in an LA gym by Rigan's gym, but I thought they ripped off TapOut.... That's crazy (I also remember like 15 different gear companies that popped up at that time too between 1998-2002)

Yeah I'm completely aware of all of this. I remember reading about the events or seeing them mentioned during the time . In 1997 I was a senior in High school and most information for these types of events I would see on a website a day or two late. First live show I went to was in late 99` I believe a Cobra Challenge event.

I`ve never met Greg myself,so I can`t say if he was cheap or not.Chances are very good that he was.

This is the vhs of the event. I think I may have the only copy other than mark. mine is unedited with the rules meeting and behind the scenes footage of the event.
