Grapplilng & Wrestlers join to make a special weekend...

Gillette, Wyoming: February 6, 2016 at the Wyoming Center in Gillette, Wyoming we will witness for the first time, wrestling and grappling combined into a one-day event. 

RMN Events and it's partner Fight to Win out of Denver, Colorado have hosted numerous grappling events together and some have expanded into New Mexico and also Texas. Wyoming will stamp it's mark on the first grappling/wrestling event on their state map come February 6th.

"Wrestlers do extremely well in grappling." said Adam Gutierrez, President of RMN Events." Gutierrez added, "Many of the moves used by a wrestler, makes them compete at a high level in grappling."

RMN Events teamed up the UFC for the past few years which saw many wrestlers make their attempts in the grappling during their scheduled event back in July at Mandalay Bay. UFC knows the dominance in the cage by wrestlers and grappling is considered the bridge between the two disciplines. 

This will be an opportunity for wrestlers to take advantage of the open mats offered at the same venue and same day at the Wild West Championships held on February 6, 2016.

Hotels and online registrations are open to reserve your spot for one or both tournaments. Visit: for more information.
