So they did an experiment and brought 5 guys from same club so what? lol
Stay in TKO 6 thread where I embarrassed you in front of your fellow trolls. You are not a knowledgeable poster at all.

They did not have any promotional companies back then in EE. Certain fighters were lucky to get a chance to come to America to fight in the early 90s or in 89. Most didn't have that chance.
