Well, they gave in on the Sambo request, but it's because there's also striking in Combat Sambo...if it was Sport Sambo, I doubt there would've ever been an issue.

Good luck to my teammate Murillo Santana! He already beat Andre Galvao in the gi twice last year I think he might do really well here! WAR MURILLO!

Also, good luck my friends Ryan Hall and Tom DeBlass!
