The 1st Grapplers Quest World Series was a HUGE success. Special thanks to all of the competitors, fans, sponsors, coaches and teams who participated in the first ever World Series of Grappling helped us SMASH our previous competitor records, SOLD OUT Texas Station rooms, restaurants and bars all weekend, plus doubled our previous "economic impact" on Las Vegas. Why was that so important? Because Grappling has never been hosted exclusively at a Hotel and Casino as a standalone event, this was history making and now we have the support from every hotel and casino in Las Vegas.

Major congrats and much respect to 4-Time Grapplers Quest Champion and former IFL Heavyweight Champion, Roy "Big Country" Nelson on winning the Ultimate Fighter Season 10 this past Saturday, Dec. 5th. We are so very proud of everything you've accomplished.
