It's a new promotion put on by Herb Dean and a couple other of the UFC affiliated refs. The rules are slightly different than your standard IBJJF clone systems and they place a high premium on advancement to submission, awarding primary points for submission efforts.

All in all an absolutely amazing day. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in getting my game where it is. And thanks to my coach, Mike, who kept me on track the whole day, despite having his own divisions to take care of. Here's Mike with the most beautiful arm bar I've ever seen:
Well, that's it for now. See you soon.
