Im actually extremely excited about this, been reading up on it a bit last few days. I couldnt find a list of the teams anywhere tho, you have one? Like rosters etc.
Do anybody know any one taking part?
I am pretty blank when it comes none pro's.
Is this going to be broadcast somewhere?
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.
I know the Finnish amateurs that are going to the World Championships.
-56,7kg: Tina L
Aleksi Toivonen by armbar.
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.
HA! one guy from my old place is on the team! COOL!
Sadly I dont know him, hes from after I left but still cool
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.
some of them do look good on paper:
125 lb Champion: Carlos Hernandez (8-0) from Illinios
135 lb Champion: Jose Torres (13-1) from Illinois
145 lb Champion: Maxwell Spiller (4-0) from New Mexico
155 lb Champion: Jose Mariscal (14-1) from Illinois
170 lb Champion: Zack Fears (11-0) from Missouri
185 lb Champion: Raymond Gray (16-3) from Missouri
205 lb Champion: Carl Floor (5-1) from New York
HWY Champion: Jarred Carle (6-9) from Nevada
135 lb Champion: Hannah Zecirz (5-0) from Missouri
145 lb Champion: Paola Ramirez (2-0) from California
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.
