    Supposedly the Armory cost somewhere around 10 grand a day to rent, so I can see why they'd be...reluctant.

    Is NAGA pretty much it for competition in the Tri State area?

    I checked the website and they were talking about superfights with Roger Gracie and another brazilian, I figure that's a little to advanced for me right now. Maybe next month.

    ****. 10k? he had fucking 1500 competitors at about 80 dollars a pop, not considering the concession stand, the merchandising, the sponsorship and the spectators.

    he's RAKING it in.

    I dont know much about NAGA but if you wanted to keep numbers down wouldnt it be best to make it so you would have to qualify for the event. I have never been able to compete in a worlds event that doesnt require qualification. Feel free to own me because I dont really know anything about NAGA just my thoughts

    Yes from the casual onlooker (me) NAGA Worlds I would assume would be a qualifying event based on nationals, but I may just be following that thread because of the word "Worlds" in the title.

    Maybe NAGA Worlds Open or NAGA Open International sounds a better descriptor.

    But really I am being picky, sounds like fun either way.

    Those are very rational assumptions, but it actually doesn't work like that. The names of the NAGA events are very much empty titles. They are all open tournaments where anyone can walk in and compete at any given event. No qualifying or anything to that effect. Every event is about getting as many people to compete as possible, so in that regard I guess this event was a 'success'.
