Shit, I hope you don't plan on being there; you'll still be receiving blood transfusions as you lay unconscious in a body cast.

He'll be fighting as an Extra-middleweight.

If I can make it out of my hospital room, I might come watch.

Yup, not an MMA event. I personally believe that Gi BJJ tournaments are great for training. Learning BJJ without using striking techniques can only make your MMA that much stronger. If a practioner relies on his striking skill to weaken his opponent to make his/her ground game effective it only means the practioners ground game is weak.

I meant it is a gi competition vs. no-gi. I understand it is not MMA.

What belt divisions will you guys be competing in?

I disagree with you, as MMA and BJJ no strike are very different. Even you understand if someone detects you are trying to submit them and working only on arm bars they are more apt to counter and you lose your element of surprise. Even Royce Gracie brings a mixed game to the octagon and he a BJJ legend no doubt. I have a very strong ground game but prefer to soften people up with my stand up before going into submissions or ground and pound. Also, good luck at the event!

It's entirely too late for me to try and figure out if that makes sense, so I'll just assume it does.

If my calendar is correct, today is 2/10/08, which makes yesterday 2/9/08, which means that this thing has already taken place.

Jimi was hungry so he left. I was told he showed up at 8am and by 8pm it was still going on and no one had a thing to eat so everyone bolted. I feel like a big tool for not going now but I wanted to see Seths first fight.

Anyone wanna go to EL Paso at the end of this month to do one? 120 round trip on Southwest and 40 bucks to compete.

Hopefully something next month or in April. I'll be gone for a couple weeks so I'll be in no shape to compete so soon.

Matt competed but did not place...

Joe was reffing so he didn't compete.

Shane had a hurt ankle and was hung over!

Hey what is a good website to find tournaments in texas? TXMMA.com is the easy answer, but they don't post EVERY tournament. maybe I'm searching wrong.

Machado says that this is the last tournament that he'll be hosting ON HIS OWN since it got too damn big for his group of guys to handle. I'm hoping to see a merge of his tournament with the Star tournament or TXBJJ and have a MEGA-TOURNAMENT.

Machado is the biggest tournament I've been to. I wonder if there are any others like it in the area. (southern states)

MMA HAS BECOME FULL CIRCLE
