Announcements / "New Replies" Not Working?
« on: June 04, 2018, 12:48:16 PM »
When I click on "New Replies," instead of displaying any new replies to threads that I've commented in (like it used to do), it goes to the main forum page.  Is this intentional?  Or is something broken?

High School & Lower / Grappling Shorts (and the Grinch vs Santa Claus)
« on: December 21, 2017, 10:10:20 AM »
My gf's son (he's in 2nd grade) has started doing a little youth wrestling through his school.  Last night, the coach (who is also the varsity HS coach) invited the kids to take on the Grinch in sumo and then stick around to watch the varsity match.  The Grinch beat all the kids, then Santa made a "surprise" appearance, the HS officer who was "called in" when the Grinch started getting rowdy pulled off his shirt to reveal a referee shirt underneath, and Santa proceeded to toss the Grinch to his back for a fall.  It was a pretty cool idea that got the little ones' attention and was enjoyed by the big ones as well (with wrestlers from the opposing team shouting instruction to Santa - like "inside control!").

Anyway, the reason for this post is that one team wore singlets while the other wore under armour style shirts with grappling shorts (except a couple kids who wore singlets but appeared to be JV guys filling spots).  Is this becoming more common (the shorts and under armour tee)?  My gf's son said he preferred the shorts and tee, but I have to say I was not a fan of that look ... it doesn't look like a 'uniform'; it looks like they're in practice gear.

to get the nation and media behind the wrestling national team the way they jumped on the soccer/futbol national team bandwagon?

I keep getting the above error every time I try to post a reply with an attachment.  Retrying does nothing but generate the same error.  Any thoughts?

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson Joins Forces With Bellator MMA, TNA Wrestling And Spike TV For Landmark Partnership
Updated: June 4, 2013 - 12:04 p.m. (ET)
Newport Beach, CA. (June 4, 2013) – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, the mixed martial arts icon and action-movie star has agreed to a monumental, multi-year partnership with Bellator MMA, TNA Wrestling and Spike TV as it was jointly announced today by Bjorn Rebney, Bellator CEO, Kevin Kay, Spike TV President, and Dixie Carter, TNA Wrestling President. The landmark partnership includes Jackson competing in Bellator MMA, along with joining the superstars of TNA’s “Impact Wrestling,” which includes fellow Bellator fighter “King Mo” Lawal. Spike TV will also create a special reality series featuring Rampage that will lead into his debut with Bellator, as well as other entertainment initiatives.

“Rampage is a true superstar both inside and outside the MMA cage” Bellator CEO & Chairman Bjorn Rebney said. “The partnership that we’ve created with Quinton is unlike anything that’s ever been done in the sports & entertainment arena and Rampage is the perfect athlete/entertainer to carry it off.”

“We are thrilled to create this opportunity for one of the greatest athletes and personalities in MMA,” said Kevin Kay, Spike TV President. “Rampage is a proven ratings driver who brings incredible star power to both Bellator and TNA.”

"Rampage is one of the best known MMA fighters competing today," said Carter. "He is a true cross-over star and his talent, big personality and popularity among a wide range of fans make him an extraordinary fit for our company,”

Jackson (32-11) joins Bellator as a former Pride and UFC champion, having last fought on Spike TV in September 2007, in a fight vs. Dan Henderson that drew nearly 6 million viewers, making it one of the most watched fights in the sport’s history. In 2009, Jackson served as a coach on Spike’s “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights,” the highest-rated season by far in franchise history, delivering over 3 million viewers per week. Rampage joins a Bellator Light Heavyweight division that features “King Mo”, Renato “Babalu” Sobral, Emanuel Newton, Attila Vegh and Vladimir Matyushenko.   

The charismatic fighter from Memphis, TN began his professional MMA career in 1999 and established his legacy across the globe through epic battles with MMA titans including Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddell, Jon Jones and Dan Henderson among others.

More information regarding this signing will be made available at Wednesday’s press conference. Details on the press conference will be released shortly.

Mixed Martial Arts / Bellator Tournaments
« on: February 08, 2013, 09:46:08 AM »
Does anybody know how quickly they make the guys in the Bellator tournaments turn around and fight again?  I'm curious how long they make the champion wait to fight, since the tourney winner (title challenger) has to fight 3 times before he gets to the title fight.

Or, do they have the champ fight someone else in between defenses against the tourney winner?
