The Fight Structure
With the 3 x 2 minute rounds, only 20 Seconds on the Ground fans are ensured more energetic fights and fighters are discouraged from using stalling tactics. An elimination structure rather than match making is the foundation of the event which is geared up for high impact non-stop action and maximizes spectator entertainment. The first of its kind Hexagon shaped ring allows for better spectator visuals.
