    I didnt hear any but I do have a question about GQ

    does anyone know if you get any prizes for placing second or third in the absolute divisions or is it just a medal ?

    wilson reis lost 4-2 in the semis/cobrina won the whole thing/ Lucas Lepri won this division but by alot of chaos wit the scoring.Brian Cimmas was the ref and lucas was losing by two points with about 45 seconds left and he scored a half ass takedown the brian only gave him an advantage for no points but the other two refs gave him two points.The refs had a discussion and then they gave him the points.But it was the best fight of the day.Even though Wilson Reis lost I still love his style he is very exciting and aggresive,

    i hope you understand i'm not flaming you or trying to start static, but this is how the sport should be viewed. just because someone loses or doesn't diminish their abilities. it's what i enjoy about grappling and mma, that on any given night or epic world war on the tatame mats anyone can win, and anyone can lose. the attitude that when someone loses they instantly lose their god like status, or the moment that someone new wins they become the next great thing, makes my tiny brain hurt.

    preferably behind you, with both hooks sunk in
    Same here....

    I pulled guard during a scramble that started in the other guys guard and i had no idea that counted as a sweep for the other guy, and then i was stuck defending closed guard subs all day :icon_sad: i was so annoyed that i coudlnt play MY bottom game

    Then the guy went on to sub two people in a row after me and that made me feel...less shitty i guess... looking foward to get back into training in 2 days

    Oh I just posted a thread about the event as this was being made. There were some good Pro matches! Not a bad event

    That decision wasnt HALF as bad them having Ricky Migliarese redo his entire 2nd match! They messed up a call, then raised the other guys hand. THEN did the whole match over! Even Ricky said "Once you raised his hand it was offical" but they still re-did the entire match and Ricky won.
    It WAS a bad decision but for my understanding once you raise someone hand its set in stone.

    my opponent i guess took me down, he grabbed my leg and i pulled guard and they gave him 2 points. then i was stuck on bottom for the remainder of the match, was too nervous to really go for anything and couldn't break his posture at all. lost 2-0. don't know how well he did b/c i just left. i'll train harder for NAGA.
