    Five Grappling's Nevada 1 Open for Registration

    Tue, 2014-03-04 16:14 — Benjamin Bieker

    Five Grappling is on the second tournament in as many months. They move on from California to Nevada as they make their way around the US. The first tournament provided some great competitors, but whoever wins here will face those winners and the rest at the end of the year. Five Grappling is making this more than one tournament experience, so if you can make it to Nevada head out there. But stay tuned as a tournament may be coming to a city near you.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American BJJ Player Blog: Vid of My First Fight From the Arizona International Open!

    Tue, 2014-03-04 11:42 — Nathan Mendelsohn

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    Hey guys! This past weekend I made a last minute trip out to the 9th Arizona International Open to fight again Ex-UFC Champion Benson Henderson! I wanted to get some fights in before the Pan's and seeing as I missed the SF Open I jumped on the chance to travel out to Arizona and fight against Benson! I had two fights, winning the first by 15-0 (video above) and then losing to Benson in the final by 3-2 on advantages (video in previous post). Benson is an awesome fighter and humble competitor and it was a great experience to fight against him in preparation for the upcoming Pan's! Knocked off some of the competition cobwebs and was reminded of a couple things to correct before the big tournament in a couple weeks! Check out the video of my first fight above!! Osssssssss
