I went to this last night in Oakland; large expo hall standing room only almost to the door, with sold-out VIP tables three deep encircling the ring. Just crazy how many people were there to watch a professional grappling event, all paying not-cheap money for tickets, parking, concessions, etc. Tons of excitement overall, and the crowd was dead silent Pride-style for the main and comain event. The FTW atmosphere and ruleset really makes competitors battle in ways that you dont see in IBJJF or EBI. I don't know what this event is like in other cities, but hard not to see the future as being very bright for our sport.
