    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    It was intended originally to be a pro team challenge, but due to some factors, we are simply entering guys in the advanced divisions. This is why we have so many guys. We were preparing for a team challenge. But, we may have one or two in the pro 8 man event.

    Here is the roster as it stands, we had to shuffle a bit due to Vlad koulikov's dropping out (his son's graduation is the day of the event).

    140-149.9 lbs. Reilly Bodycomb (New York Combat Sambo, NYC)
    150-159.9 lbs. Scott Yockel (Empire Academy, Rochester, NY)
    160-169.9 lbs. Ryan Ahearn (Ultimate Sambo, Florida, NY)
    170-179.9 lbs. Mike Franco (Brooklyn Wrestling Club, NYC)
    180-189.9 lbs. Rodney Rappe (Liberty Bell Judo/Sambo, Philly, PA)
    190-199.9 lbs. Oleg Savitsky (Red Bear Sambo Academy, NJ)
    200-209.9 lbs. Doug Fournet (Gladiator Academy, Baton Rouge, LA)
    210 lbs. and over Brian Benjamin (Ultimate Sambo, Florida, NY)
    210 lbs. and over Carlos Cummings (Cummings Combat Sambo, Panama City, Fla)

    Inside Martial Arts has done a piece on Team American Sambo. The episode is great. We filmed at Reilly's club (www.remixdojo.com).

    To watch the episode (the third story in the show), visit www.insidemartialarts.tv and watch episode 19. You can watch a better quality version via iTunes.

    See you there, Steve! Luckily, I'm in the chump division, so I won't have to fight any of your guys.
