Southern Draw Grappling Tournament

Hey Guys I need some resumes from (GI) Brown or Black and (No GI) PRO fighters for the money open divisions ($1000.00) each division.

We have an amazing venue at the Suwanne Sports Academy. Registration will be performed on "Fight Pro" software allowing us to register people every 20 seconds and update the brackets automatically. This should be a tournament void of the usual problems. Fox Sports South has showed interest in filming and think we may make it happen. This is some good exposure for the Southeast's grappling scene.

Anyway if you guys are interested please send the resumes to

Just A Reminder...
