  • Overview


    As we got closer to June, it was apparent in the mayhem of Covid-19, we will not be able to hold the MT Expo in June as we had hoped we could. We have officially rescheduled the tournament to October 8-11, 2020. It is forecasted that several states will not peak until at least the end of April and some possibly mid-May. While this is frustrating, we know that it will allow for an even bigger and more exciting event once we are able to get together safely in October! With the extra time we’ve extended and the high number we already have registered (312), we anticipate several brackets filling up faster than if it were still in June.

    Registrations are still open and the fee will stay at the intro price ($84/$89) until July 5th. The transfer fee will also be waived until July 5th. Approximately 8 weeks out (Beginning of August) we will go through the customary process and close out any brackets that do not have at least one fighter registered in it. We will then work on combining, where necessary and adjusting junior brackets by age/weight.

    Thank you to everyone that has shown their support over the 14 years of the tournament as well as all of the TBA-SA sanctioned events.

    To EVERYONE – we miss you. We’re anxious for the summer to get over with so we can see everyone again. In the meantime, please follow your states requirements to stay at home and of course, a covid-19 post would not be official without the following: WASH YOUR HANDS! 
