GFL Presents Global Wrestling Championship Beginning December 29 on TCN & CSN Comcast

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “GLOBAL WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIP” BEGINNING DECEMBER 29

December 26, 2014

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class Olympic-style wrestling as GWC presents another show stopper with Global Wrestling Championship Howe VS Dake, featuring a full lineup of grapplers competing on the mat from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

Tony Ramos added to his wrestling resume in May when he beat Sam Hazewinkel with a ticket to the World Championships on the line.
Their next encounter will provide Ramos with a chance to add to his bank account and seize the first championship belt in a league that’s aiming to change the wrestling landscape.

The Global Wrestling Championships is set to debut Nov. 22 in Ithaca, N.Y., with three $10,000 title bouts that will be shown on a webcast. Ramos is slated to wrestle Hazewinkel for the flyweight title, Kyle Dake is scheduled to take on Andrew Howe or Nick Marable for the welterweight crown and Tyrell Fortune is set to tangle with Tervel Dlagnev for the heavyweight belt.

“We’re trying to create an audience for the sport that hasn’t been there up to this point,” Global Wrestling Championships producer Wayne Boyd said. “When you put money in the mix, a prize and you put a belt that has some prestige, you get a wider audience base.”
That’s one of Boyd’s objectives. Another is upping the ante for post-collegiate wrestlers.

Boyd, a 1969 NCAA champion for Temple, remembers the days when he borrowed money, worked side jobs and hitchhiked to get to wrestling tournaments. He envisions a future with 11 club teams competing in a dual league that could fund nearly 90 wrestlers with Olympic aspirations. The league could begin in 2015.

“Right now we’re only paying the very top echelon,” Boyd said. “We’re trying to give a guy who might not ever make an Olympic team the chance to make $30,000 to $50,000 per year competing for one of the clubs. And you don’t have to be the best guy at the weight.”
Boyd said Global Wrestling Championships is backed by the Titan Mercury Wrestling Club, a group that lists 43 wrestlers on its senior freestyle roster, including former Iowa stars Ramos, Matt McDonough, Phil Keddy, Montell Marion, as well as Deron Winn and Jarod Trice of the Cyclone Wrestling Club.

The Global Wrestling Championships will feature a best-of-five series with three minute bouts and freestyle rules. The first event comes a little more than a month after Flowrestling unveiled the Flo Premier League with a bout between two-time NCAA champion Chris Perry and Robert Hamlin.

“Flo has their league, but they aren’t paying anywhere near what the payday is for winning matches in this,” said Ramos, who swept the best-of-three championship series against Hazewinkel in the finals of the World Team Trials. “It’s a good opportunity.”
For perspective, Iowa coach Tom Brands said he once won $9,000 at a two-day event overseas.

“The one thing that probably talks more than anything else to get something done is to reward the athletes – because without the athletes you don’t have an event,” Brands said. “That’s where we’re missing the boat sometimes. Regardless of what my mentality is as a competitor, anybody, anytime, anywhere – that’s not reality because these guys are getting smarter. Their time is more valuable.’
“A guy like (three-time World and Olympic champion) Jordan Burroughs is worth a lot of money to go other places and make appearances. You get a guy like Tony Ramos or a guy like Kyle Dake who haven’t really arrived on the scene yet but have made themselves relevant with other results or their past has made them important, now all of a sudden you give them relevant money and the public wants to go see that.”

Grapple at the Garden Review

NEW YORK – Though mixed martial arts is still banned in New York, that doesn’t mean its piecemeal components are.

Sunday’s Grapple at the Garden event at Madison Square Garden featured wrestling battles between well-known names in the world of MMA, as well as some of the finest wrestlers in the country at the high school and college levels.

In the main event of the afternoon affair, Olympic hopeful and New York native Kyle Dake of the U.S. took on world champion Arsen Julfalakyan of Armenia. The four-time collegiate champion Dake grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period, only to see Julfalakyan score on a series of turns in the second. Dake was unable to make up the deficit and lost a decision, 6-3.

Meanwhile in the co-main, Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion Khadjimurad Gatsalov of Russia went head to head against world bronze medalist Tervel Dlagnev. Dlagnev took an early lead with a first period takedown, but Gatsalov made it close in the second. Dlagnev, from the D-II school the University of Nebraska-Kearney, ended up getting the decision (7-4).

The final match of the Team Renzo Gracie vs. Team Joe Warren collective battle was a heavyweight bout between “King” Muhammed Lawal and Rolles Gracie. Lawal, in his MSG wrestling debut, was able to score the win. .

In a 185-pound match between Darryl Christian and Gregor Gracie, it was the 27-year old Brazilian who scored one for team Renzo Gracie. Gracie won a hard-fought decision.

Bellator’s Brennan Ward, who wrestled at Johnson & Wales University, competed against Igor Gracie. It was Ward who ended up getting his arm raised, with a decision. Ward was wearing a head wrap after taking an elbow in MMA training.

Gray Maynard, who last fought in the UFC at TK, appeared against World Series of Fighting’s Ozzy Dugulubgov at 170 opined. The two went back and forth, with Maynard pushing Dugulubgov throughout. “The Bully” looked in control of the bout through the opening minute, but the Renzo Gracie wrestler Dugulubgov had his moments.

Maynard won a decision in the end (14-3).

“I love being on the mat, especially at Madison Square Garden,” Maynard said afterwards.

Also on the card, good friends (and training partners) Joe Warren and Scott Jorgensen went at it, and it was Bellator bantamweight champ Warren who got the victory. Warren defeated Jorgensen quickly, pinning him in 53 seconds. The first time that is. At the end of the Gracie-Warren matches, Jorgensen, not satisfied with his first performance, called for a rematch. Warren was only too game. Second verse was same as the first, though, as Warren was ahead of Jorgensen 11-8 when he finished him with the fall.
