For both gi and no-gi matches, IBJJF rules (https://ibjjf.com/rules/) will be implemented with the following derivations:

 Weight Regulations

  1. Weight classes are based on the contracted agreement. Fighters are required to make weight within an hour of their first attempt.

  2. Fighters who miss weight will lose 50% of their prize money

  3. The promotion has full discretion to cancel any bout for extreme discrepancies in weight

 Fight Regulations

  1. ALL matches are 7-minutes unless otherwise negotiated

  2. First fighter to either score 11 points or earn a submission wins

  3. Advantages are NOT used for scoring points

  4. To prevent stalling, a yellow card will be issued to either or both competitors.

    • If a second yellow card is issued, fighters are required to standup and restart.

    • A third stalling violation results in a red card, requiring the competitor to forfeit 20% of their prize money

  5. In the event that there is not a winner after regulation time, overtime rules take effect:

    • Overtime is a sudden death format. The first competitor to score points or submit their opponent within five minutes wins.

    • Overtime is decided by whomever is up on points at the end of regulation. Whoever is ahead will choose top/bottom FULL GUARD or start on the feet

    • If no points scored, referee will decide who was aggressor and award them the opportunity to pick or defer to the other competitor. 

    • If no Submission or Points scored in 5 minutes...referees will render a decision based on aggression, going for the finish, and legitimate submission attempts. Fighting to win...not to lose. 

    • For no-gi, heel-hooks are permitted for fighters that are brown belts and higher unless otherwise negotiated.
