Been at NY Comic Con all weekend so forgive me for my lack of updates. Now I have returned and to reward you for your patience in my absence, I will reveal a new prize to this weekends Fight Nerd Video Game Open tournament!
In addition to the already enormous prize pool that I announced, we now have free passes to the MMA World Expo at the Jacob Javits Center in November, with first place winning two full weekend passes and the two runners-up receiving a pair of one day passes, good for either day. Last year, the show had Wanderlei Silva and Matt Hughes as the guests of honor, and this year it holds the debut of the Renzo Gracie no-gi open tournament. This grappling competition also features an absolute division with a money prize to the winner of $3,000. There will also be an amateur Muay Thai tournament with the winner receiving a trip to Thailand, plus seminars from instructors like Renzo Gracie, Marcelo Garcia, Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro, Phil Nurse, and Ricardo Liborio. Check out the video above for more details!
So yeah, you do the math and tell me that is not an awesome prize pool, all for playing some UFC Undisputed 2010. If you have not already registered for the event, or if you want to come down and just play some games and have some fun, head to this link for more details. The MMA World Expo will be at Javits Center this November 12 and 13 in NYC, head to their site for more details on tickets, seminars and other event info.
