Dana doesn't like the OAC, and said he would not bring his horse & pony show there again. Still, about every fighter & their mother is there. I heard K-1 is having an event there, but on Thursday night.

It's been a while since I've checked, but Randy Couture (surprise) was scheduled for an appearance on Saturday, I believe.

Why? What's Danal's fuckign problem all the god damned time? The Arnold weekend and a UFC event are a perfect mash up. Dana needs to check his fuckin ego.

I heard this is it Friday? Nogi is Saturday and gi is Sunday Im thinking about driving out and competing don't know how I feel about haveing to stay both days though. I heard horror stories about the refs and competition too anyone competing or have anything positive about it?

When they first started it I believe Relson Gracie was responsible? That may not be correct, but I think it was his org. Maybe nice guys, but the tournament was always awfully ran. Everyone on here would bitch about all the problems, they would come on asking what they could do better and then the same shit next. Last time I went with a friend that was competing the weigh-ins were at 10 or 11, and they didn't even have scales. How fucked is that? Then because of disorganization the matches would stretch on until past 11 at night. I had friends get shuffled into the wrong weight class. Had refs off the mat bs'ing when I was competing and missed points.


Then NAGA took over and it ran great. I think the matches were finished by the afternoon, and everything went smoothly. But I think they no longer run it. Maybe John Saylor took over? I haven't been there in a few years so I don't know how it runs now.

Thanks for the input, this is alot of the problems I heard as well. was told most of the refs were all karate guys so they had no clue what was going on. I had thought naga was still doing it but there schedule shows a Columbus competition but later in the year. Maybe I will just pass and be that guy who's rolling like its a competition all weekend at the gym and buy myself a case of beer as a trophy. Looking at the schedule seems like a cluster fuck maybe I can schedule myself into arm wrestling and table tennis world championships to fill the waiting void.
