EddieBravo - The finals will be 20 minutes. If time expires. We go into a soccer type "free kick" overtime situation. Each competitor gets to chose back control with both legs hooks or spider web aka arm bar position. The combatant with the quickest sub wins. If no subs, the combatant with the quickest escape wins. This will ensure that when a grappler is defending he doesn't just sit there t-rexxed. It's in his best interest to escape as fast as possible. Remember, fastest escape wins if no subs Phone Post
Awesome.

Maybe just back control with hooks in would be better. No spider web.

How do you determine who goes first?

Coin toss? Phone Post

Tremendous. Only thing that could make it better is if this "soccer type free kick overtime" you should let the grapplers choose from any position (not submission) other than the two mentioned. This would add another level of strategy. Phone Post

There will be 8 matches in the first round. The number 1 and 2 seeds will go against each other in the 8th match of the first round.

Why pit the top 2 guys together in the last match of the 1st round u ask? Let me explain.

The second round can have many different looks.

There could be only 2 competitors advancing to the 2nd round, resulting in the finals taking place right there in the 2nd round, or there could be 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 combatants advancing to the 2nd round.

But what if the first seven matches are all draws?

Well that means the 8th match, with the 2 best guys competing against each other, is automatically the finals.

This guarantees a bad ass super fight finals if there are zero subs in the first 7 matches.

So far Kron is the number one seed and Bill Cooper, IMO, is the second seed.

So no matter what happens in the first 7 matches the fans are guaranteed a super fight. Phone Post

Tyron Glover, it'd be cool to see him come out of retirement. I'm sure he still trains hard. My wishlist:

-Mendes bros
-Baret Yoshida
-Delicious Bass
-Ryan Hall
-JT Torres
-Leandro Lo
-Tanner Rice
-Tanquinho
-Satoshi
-Cornelious
-Meow Meow bros

Dang...YOU ARE THE MAN Eddie! How any "Worlds" should be, invitation. Separating the pros from the hobbyists.

Would be cool to see a submission-based MMA guy in it. Would assume that the UFC wouldn't allow any of their guys to do something like this. Maybe Aoki or somebody similar. He fights at 155ish, but I would assume out of training camp he'd be closer to the 170 you're looking for.

Can you opponent grab your GI if you are wearing one and he is not? If you are wearing a GI and your opponent is not, can you grab board shorts?

I think 15 min is a perfect time limit. It's long enough that the competitors have plenty of time to work but not too long that it'll make it boring Phone Post

Eddie,

for the soccer type "free kick" overtime situation, i thought there was supposed to be 3 options. back control, spider web, or the truck.

In the finals overtime, in back control, losing both leg hooks stops the clock. But if you transition to an arm bar or triangle the clock continues to run. Going from back control to the mount or any kind of guard stops the clock. In spider web the clock stops when a fighter pulls his arm out of danger completely. Spider web to a triangle does not stop the clock. Spider to the back does not stop the clock. Spider web to the mount or any guard stops the clock. Back control to the truck does not stop the clock because one leg hook is still in.

Remember, in the overtime rounds, the fastest sub wins the 20k. If there are no subs the fastest escape wins the 20k. This will ensure that both competitors are in an urgent mind set no matter if they are playing offense or defense. Phone Post

I'd like to ask my question again if you don't mind. I would like to best prepair my training partner for the tournament. Being able to grab pants if in no gi attire is important

If one competitor is wearing pants and one is wearing shorts, the guy with the shorts gets to decide if grabbing clothes is permitted. If the guy wearing shorts says it's ok to grab his opponent's pants then his shorts can also be grabbed :-) Phone Post
