UFC GYM team grappling competition April 7th

Friday, February 22, 2019

Rrepresent your club and register your 5 man quintet team for UFC GYM team grappling event!!!

 

This will be a great opportunity to test yourself in a fun competitive environment in a cool new format.

 

How the competition works:

2 teams of 5 will face off in an elimination team event.  Competitor one from each team will start, should one competitor submit the other then the athlete that achieved the submission will then stay on to face the second competitor.  Should no submission occur in the time allotted then both athletes are eliminated.  This will continue until one team has eliminated all members of the opposition.

 

Both teams will provide their team lists one week prior and the team MUST come under the weight limit.
