    June 3, 2007
    Fountain Valley CA

    On Sunday June 3, 2007 in Fountain Valley, CA the 4th Pan American of Submission Grappling took place just on the outskirts of Huntington Beach, CA. The tournament was hosted by World Grappling Games (GrapplingTournaments.com), in conjunction with a generous sponsorship provided by On The Mat (OntheMat.com). The event came on the heels of K-1 Hero’s Dynamite!! USA, which took place the night before at the historical L.A. Coliseum. The event staff worked diligently into the night at the L.A. Coliseum and then transitioned after the show was over to prepare a stellar Submission Grappling extravaganza complete with 1000’s of dollars in cash and prizes for advanced bracket winners that squared off after winning their own respective divisions. The following is a break down on the highlights of the regular men’s and women’s divisions as well as the open divisions, pro matches, and event highlights!

    Event Highlights:

    Grappler of the Day: Baret Yoshida for submitting pretty much everyone in attendance.

    Submission of the Day: Scott Bieri over Fred Leavy via gogoplata in the Open division.

    Best Ringside Chant: Jimmy “WUTANG” Tang.

    Biggest Upset: Jimmy Tang over Johnny Ramirez via triangle.

    Most interesting game plan: Sean Spangler sitting to his butt and turtling to bait his opponent Jesse Juarez, spinning and submitting Juarez from his guard via armbar. (This would be considered the complete opposite of Spangler’s game).

    Match that should have happened: Gazzy Parman (referee) vs. Felicia Oh (score keeper).

    Most intriguing possible rematch: Bill Cooper (competitor) vs. Kron Gracie (coach).

    Referee with best tattoo sleeves: Rudy “Rudini” Fischmann.

    Dance-off that should have happened: Jeff Glover vs. Tavis Heinzelmann.

    Best display of acrobatics: Bill Cooper reversing a guillotine attempt into a standing north-south position, which led to his opponent James Clay fleeing the mat and being DQ’d.

    Hottest Chick in Attendance: Dirrty D, repping OTM with Mr. Do Nothing himself!

    Celebrity Sitings: Brittney Skye, Pat “Hawk” Hardy, and Danny Trejo hanging out at the OTM Fight Shop booth. *

    * The night before at K-1 Hero’s Dynamite!! USA.
