Time Limits and Match Procedure

All 16 Man Tournament Matches will consist of a: 7 minute regulation period.  During the regulation period no formal points will be awarded; however, the referee will be scoring the match in its entirety based on the Judging and Scoring Criteria (see below).  Upon expiration of the regulation period, should no submission occur, the referee will render a decision and the winner will advance.  The tournament is single elimination; but, should a match winner be unable to advance the referees will collaborate to chose an eliminated fighter to return to the competition as a replacement.  The tournament champion will be awarded $1000 cash.

Weight Classes

Each weight class has specific weight limits, and fighters must meet these limits during the official weigh-ins before their bouts.

The CS/R Las Vegas Invitational will be held in 1 Weight Classes:

Judging and Scoring Criteria

The referee is the sole arbiter of the match.  In the event of regulation time expiring with neither competitor securing a submission, it is the referee who evaluate the regulation period based on effective submission attempts, positional control, sweeps & reversals, takedowns & throws, and finally aggression.

Any submission attempt that disrupts a position or strategic approach will be considered an effective submission attempt.  The fighter with more significant attempts will be valued higher.

Positional control will be evaluated based on the ability to strike one’s opponent.  The fighter in position to strike for a longer duration of time will be valued higher.

Effective takedowns & throws can be defined as taking an opponent off their feet in a controlling and offensive manner. The attacker must maintain positional control for 2 full seconds after a takedown has been completed.

Slams are not permitted and are defined as malicious and intentionally driving one's opponent into the competition surface with force.
