    I am going.

    Masters 189 newb divisions FTW.

    I plan on becoming king of the white belts.

    Me and another catch guy are going to watch (to see what's up). I would participate if I had enough time to train. Right now I would have to fight at Super Heavy...Uh no thanks. I have enough problems with the 300 pounders in class. With training I would aim for the 189 lbs. class.

    I was talking to some guys from New Breed BJJ and they said they have a bunch of guys going. I think they won the whole thing the last few years.

    Nice; I think I saw a few of your matches if I recall correctly, since there was a young guy in a grey shirt who grabbed for rubber guard in multiple matches.

    My gym was there...New Breed Chicago. Overall I thought NAGA did OK compared to the previous NAGA I went to.


    I was in Masters White Belt and No-Gi as well as Mens White Belt 149.9.
