The GFC was built as a national tournament held in the Midwest in the great state of Michigan.  Starting with talent from the Midwest and steel belt states like Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, along with a strong contingent of Floridians and many other states from across the country the GFC grew into one of the premiere pre-season national tournaments in the country.  COVID restrictions led to a relocation to Myrtle Beach for 2020 and 2021, but the event returns to it's home state of Michigan in 2022.  Right in the heart of wrestling country multiple big time wrestling states are short driving distance to Kalamazoo and we expect another loaded field this year!
Are you up to the Challenge? cordially invites the baddest and best wrestlers from across the country to make a trip to Michigan this fall to put their talents on display at the 12th Annual Grappler Fall Classic
