I don't know why I asked I can only tell you about Ammy because I'm not a pro yet.

Basically Ammy mma in Florida is rise of a warrior that's it. All the other promotions suck, really I went to fight at American battle championships( witch is the worst IMO). And they tell us to be there at 5 and fights start at 7. Well I get there and the cage isn't built all the fighters are waiting outside because the promoter isn't there.

And I didn't fight till 1:30 in the morning and the worst part about it is its on Monday night so I had to wake up early the next day.

I'm never fighting there again.

If you have any more specific questions ill try to help if needed. Phone Post

Da_man couldn't be more right. Rise of a Warrior is first class. Awesome event. ABC is a train wreck. Phone Post

Breakthrough MMA puts on a good show. So does Combat Night.

Tom Sauer runs World Cage Warriors in Ocala. It's the best run show I've been to.

I'll probably be checking out ROAW this weekend. Phone Post

I've promoted nogi grappling tourneys for 4 years there. I started without any connections or money and my scoring system wasn't IBJJF which stops a lot of Brazilians from competing. I have never lost money on a tourney and now have the support of one of the most well know gyms in the state/country and while I myself moved out of the country for a while my brother has a deal to run our tourneys on weekend mma cruises to the carribean.

I think naga has done one before. It's reasonable. I think it $200 for the weekend, which includes 2 nights at sea, stop at a carribbean island, seminars and a nogi tourney.

Don't quote me on any of that. I'll have my brother come on here and post all the details. Phone Post

Glad you enjoyed it! After I come home this summer we're going to make a push to run tourneys once a month. Phone Post

It seems like you guys stopped promoting the tourneys I haven't heard about one in at least 3 months? But either way I'm a fan of FXG. Phone Post
