Sept. 28, 2011 | TORONTO, ON – Mixed Martial Arts
Expo – the Original MMA Fan Expo since 2005 ™ – is proud to announce
that the upcoming Toronto Expo taking place December 3-4, 2011 will
feature a NAGA Grappling Tournament. NAGA Toronto is expected to be the
largest submission grappling tournament ever held in Canada.

“Without question, NAGA is the premier event for submission grappling
competitors in North America and we are extremely pleased to host this
world-class tournament at our Toronto show,” stated Gerald Chopik,
president of Mixed Martial Arts Expo. “This is year seven for MMA Expo
and the show gets bigger each year.  Interest in this tournament is
already very high and we expect NAGA to draw well over 700 competitors
from across Canada and the USA.”

NAGA President Kipp Kollar expressed: “NAGA is very excited to be a
part of the MMA Expo and to hold our first grappling tournament in
Canada.  We know the grappling and MMA scene in Canada is filled with
talented and enthusiastic competitors.  Many Canadian grapplers have
made the trek to the United States to compete in NAGA.  We cannot wait
to bring NAGA to Toronto to give more Canadian grapplers a chance to
compete in the World’s largest association of grapplers.”

NAGA Toronto will feature over 300 No-Gi and Gi grappling divisions
with a division for everyone regardless of age, skill or weight.  NAGA
will be awarding championship belts to all Expert Division winners. All
