QUINTET First overseas expansion is Las Vegas! On October 5, it was officially decided that QUINTET.3 will be held at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, USA. In the number series competition, teams that have become an eyeball have been playing, but this time Alpha Male led by Urijah Faber who played UFC Hall of Fame at the same time as Kazushi Sakuraba participated in this time. Urijah himself also decided to participate as a player.

QUINTET.1 tournament winners, Team Polaris, have announced four of the same members: Craig Jones, Gregor Gracie, Daniel Strauss, and Marcin Held, plus a new 5th member, Vitor ‘Shaolin’ Ribeiro, completing their quintet. With his BJJ base and competition experience, Shaolin has been successful in MMA and Polaris Pro Grappling, and is a huge addition to the team. Their opponents, Team 10th Planet, will face them with an identical team to which they took the QUINTET.2 championship and are looking to continue their run with a second tournament victory.

Looking for their own tournament victory, Team Sakuraba: Kazushi Sakuraba, Josh Barnett, Marcos Yoshio Souza, and Robert Satoshi Souza have selected Daisuke Nakamura in their bid to win QUINTET.3.

Leader of Team Alpha Male, Urijah Faber, has finalized his team bringing with him Dustin Akbari, Mansher Khera, Kelly Anundsen, and Antoine Jaoude. Khera and Akbari have competed at the very top of world class BJJ. Jaoude has a wrestling base, and represented Brazil in the 2004 Olympics in Athens. With such a decorated line up, Team Alpha Male bring a compelling dynamic into the mix.

Using the unique grappling survival match concept rules trailblazed by QUINTET, audiences can expect aggressive, fast-paced grappling match ups. Bouts are set for 8 minutes, and will be decided by submission only within the allotted time. Should there be no clear winner after the duration, matches will be decided from a sudden death “Golden Score” extension in which combatants can win or lose via submission or 3 “shido” (referee cautions).

The first of these matches will serve to open the Las Vegas show, featuring Hideo Tokoro and Nicky Ryan. Having competed in all QUINTET events to date and successfully showcasing the fascinating rule set, Tokoro faces Nicky Ryan, younger brother of New Jersey Gracie Academy’s head coach, and student of John Danaher, Gordon Ryan. With a victory over none other than Geo ‘Freakazoid’ Martinez and still at the young age of 17, Nicky has very bright future ahead of him.

In th second match Quintet will  presents heavyweights, Frank Mir and Satoshi Ishii bring world class grappling skills to orleans arena on Oct.5th!
