    Anyone in the south should come out! Its in Tunica, MS at The Grand Casino. About an hour from Memphis.



    Modern Combatives Army instructor ANDREW CHAPPELLE (5-5) returns after a two-year hiatus to face Memphis native ADRIANO “NASAL” PEREIRA in a 155-pound match. Chappelle has spent his time on the sidelines sharpening his tools while preparing America’s best, but now he’s ready to show the world he still has what it takes to be a top contender. Pereira is arguably the best grappler in the Deep South. As a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Murilo Bustamante and the Brazilian Top Team, “Nasal” will test his 5-3 record and aims for a submission win in front of his hometown crowd.

    Rex Richards is solid, I've seen him fight on atleast 1 strikeforce undercard...HUGE but still athletic...I think he is or was a pro arena football player.
