I'm starting to think that Eastern Europe is very different than W Europe or any other western state. I still remember that vid you posted of that boxer (?) who moved to E Europe and discussed how culturally and politically its way different.

Come to think of it, how much COVID news do you hear from places like Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania etc?

Please keep us posted I might tune into that event if possible

Not sure I remember that specific video but I've heard numerous stories about Eastern Euros who come into Western gyms with a totally different mindset, often even drunken savants. The main difference though I think is that their people still have the culture memory of true poverty and it spurs them on in the push for success. Just 30 years ago they plummeted into 3rd world levels of starvation. My girlfriend remembers the time, she said her family could either pay the electricity bill and not eat food or eat without electricity. The only covid news Ive heard from the Eastern Bloc is that Orban increased his power with some kind of state of emergency declaration which I have mixed feelings about.

The Org is called Oktagon MMA, they are holding tournaments with 100k Euros prizes. In a cage, 4 oz gloves, 3x3 min rounds + extra round for draws. Its basically MMA but it gets stood up as soon as it goes to the ground but with the new rule that 3 takedowns will be scored a 10-8 like a knock down would. Half the fighters will be Czech/Slovak, half will be foreigners.

I'm hearing some buzz about whether or not fighters will have to be vaccinated to continue competing or not.

My favorite kickboxer Ren Hiramoto has been training MMA lately apparently he will transition. I hope he is not as good at TDD as Izzy because I dont want him to go full time MMA. Im probably in luck though because MMA is still smallish in Japan.
