no oppornents for the national team trial?
anyways wish ur luck in Switzerland in UsA team Next Dec.

Tara lost at 121 final… too much cutting weight? 135-121=14, maybe she walks around over 135
when she doesnt have fights, so must be more than 10% of weight cutting.
seeems final against Oh was very close though.

In a battle of returning World champions, Oh defeated Tara LaRosa of the Philadelphia Fight Factory in the finals, 4-3 in overtime. The score tied at 3-3 at the end of regulation. Oh scored the winning point on an escape when LaRosa had a lapse of judgement and let her go at the start of the overtime. Oh won her World title last year at 121 pounds, while LaRosa was a World champion at 136.5 pounds.

Lisa Ward won at 105.5, Miesha Tate is also 1st place at 158.5…

Miesha Tate of Victory Athletics claimed the 158.5-pound title, upsetting returning World champion Valerie Worthington of New Breed in the finals match, 4-2. Tate scored the opening takedown in the match, and was able to score a reversal later in the match for the margin of victory.
at men`s division 202.5, that Ian Murphy  who fought Jacare in Japan is 2nd place.
