    Below is a list of fighters. Bear in mind their record may not be 100% accurate - it is impossible to get hold of some of their records.

    How could Smajic be European and Asian champion this year? I thought they had to fight in their proper continent's championship

    Yea not really sure how it works - there were plenty of Europeans competing in the Asian Chamionships - Smajic, Rabhi & Harila (all Sweden) were all champions in it. And the European Championships this year had fighters competing from Mexico, Lebanon, Bahrain etc. Personally i think the Asian Open should be limited to fighters from Asia, European Championships limited to fighters from Europe etc.

    maybe some guest teams to fill the brackets. But yeah it would be better if they are limited to their continent or at least they shpuld choice some guests that don't have a big chance of winning the whole thing lol

    They're all open championships: 'European Open,' 'Asian Open' etc. Same format as the French tennis open or Dutch karate open, for example

    FYI a lot of athlete registrations are still being processed due to the annual deadline day rush all coming through together, so the divisions will have further developed since.

    Can anyone fill me in on the rules of this competition? Quiet alot of 0-0 fighters uo there. Is there a maximum experience level? Obviously no pros but surely countries must have people better than 0-0 fighters?

    No maximum experience level, other than pro.

    The records are not accurate, there's actually very few 0-0 fighters although young and fresh contenders do come through of course. The MyNextMatch system tracks results of any bouts that take place at IMMAF championships or national level events that are recorded with the MNM tool. I can spot a bunch of those 0-0s than I know aren't correct. Other than that, the record sources are Sherdog, Tapology and the UG which are all missing vast results from bouts outside of IMMAF events and tend to mix up amateur as pro also.

    I'm kind of disappointed Swanson didn't compete for the US at HW. Obvious favorites in the heavier divisions are Krastanov, Smajic, Turkalj, and Weeks. LHW is really anyone's game though.

    Yea JCurran nailed it - take those records with a pinch of salt, most of the 0-0 guys will have had at least 5 fights, there is just no record of it on sherdog, tapplogy or MNM. One example is Caseniul John, a middleweight from france who i have down as 0-0.... I've watched pne of his fights on youtube and he looks a beast - very wild & green but certainly one i will be keeping an eye on. There is no record of his results anywhere, so i have him down as 0-0, even though i have watched one of his fights.

    And the registrations still coming in slowly - up to 250 now. The Fw, Lw & Ww categories are full now. I won't update first post, will just post a full list wheni do my preview to it next month.
