South USA Grappling Association Tournament Moves to Earlier Date
The South USA Grappling Association (SUGA) is preparing for its 9th annual Louisiana State Championship tournament which will take place on Jan. 28, 2017. This year marks the first year the tournament will take place in January as it is normally a March tournament.
''People asked me to host an early event to get the focused through the holiday,'' said tournament organizer Rafael Ellwanger. ''A lot of people got promoted during the holiday, so this event will be special because a lot of people will be testing their skills in a new level.''
The tournament is expected to draw about 250 competitors and 800 spectators to Chappapeela Sports Park in Hammond, Louisiana.
Registration is being accepted through Jan. 26.
The tournament is equipped with professional Grappling and MMA mats from SUGA tournament sponsor Greatmats.
