Quintet (stylized as QUINTET) is a 5 on 5 tag team Japanese grappling promotion created by MMA legend Kazushi Sakuraba. Quintet is broadcast on UFC Fight Pass.[1]

Rules[edit]

Fight Mat[edit]

12mx12m square wrestling mat. No line boundaries. In case of obvious risk of falling out of the mat area, the referee stops the bout and the bout is restarted in a safe area in the same position.[2]

Winner Stays on System[edit]

Winner fights to the next fighter from the opposing team. Draw means both fighters are out. If the last fighter loses, the team loses.[2] In the case that both teams are down to their last fighters with the match results in a draw, the winning team is then determined by whichever has the least amount of cumulative penalties throughout all the matches.

Weight[edit]

Total weight of the team (five fighters) must be: Regular Weight Class: under 430 kg one day prior to the event. Light Weight Class: under 360 kg one day prior to the event.[2]

Time Limits[edit]

Usually it is 1X8min round & 1X4min round (Regular Weight Class: in case of 20 kg+ weight difference Light Weight Class: in cases of 10 kg+ weight difference)[2]
