    I have been looking for names and nothing yet. they must not have pro fights to be allowed to compete so no known fighters I guess. maybe some people with serious credentials in other combat sports transitioning to MMA.

    no clue either. I hope each and everyone of the fights is put on Youtube. they could also put it on Fight Pass, given the good relationship they have with the UFC.

    Think there might be a stream of the event or it will be something you can only see in person? Would be interesting to watch.

    He's legit on the ground for sure. He won gold at the European No-Gi Championships at purple belt just last year.

    will they do red shorts vs blue shorts or every team will have their country colors? country color shorts would look cooler in my opinion. white cage would have a clean and classy feel too.

    to be honest, the american heavyweight's amateur record is a bit dissapointing. records don't mean everything, but 6-9 as an amateur is pretty bad for the guy representing US MMA.

    Maybe its hard to get good fighters?
    Do people in US want to fight amateur fights?
    I have no clue about the US amateur scene at all but some people go pro with almost no fights. Also I think to recall some thread about its better to be pro in US since its better security for the fighter and medics and so on. Too risky being amateur.
    ???
    As said I have no clue.

    I think its easier for western europe to come with good fighters since going pro is not that easy. But its going to be interesting :)

    maybe that's the reason. it makes sense.

    not a bad thing at all if the finals are full of fighters from a lot of different countries instead of americans and brazilians only

    well I could see a shit load if high level BJJ guys and girls one their team.

    I don't think US will be one of the top nations in this.

    HW champ is a weird one record wise. I guess HW is as thin as in the pros :icon_chee

    On paper, damn looks good and pretty experienced guys too.
    I should have clicked the link before talking BS I see that now.
    I dont pay much attention to amateur records since thats a learning period.
    If you are to lose its the right time.

    I am actually starting to look forward to this event.
