Just wanted to say that if you skipped out on the ultimate submission experience, you really missed out. It was sort of poorly run and everyone was crowded into a pretty small place...but for a first big tournament in Utah it went really, really well. Lots of cool guys competing as well. I was all around satisfied with the day....even though I lost.
And the proceeds go to sub-for Santa. Brandon Ruiz popped the idea that we make it a yearly event and call it "Sub for Santa."
Forgive him for the pun . . . he's been a little under the weather lately. :)
Sweet. Who kicked ass?

85 total competitors and a few hundred spectators made it an awesome event. Congrats to everyone that participated.
Yeah Its pretty cool we finally had a sub tournament. I heard their will be another one in march at Rich Layton's place can anyone confirm this. Any info on weight classes and entry to this rumored tournament would be great.
I haven't heard about Riche's but there is a rumor that there will be mini-tournaments on Saturdays (as in "every")at the UCTC in the nea future.
Cool keep us updated DJ
I'll try. IT came from Phil Henderson (of Slam Inc.)
WOW. I can't believe how nice that would be.
