After the 5 minute match if there is no submission, the match is a draw. Whoever has the most submissions in their bracket is the champion. If 2 people are tied with the same amount of submissions, how they did against each other in heads up competition will be the first criteria to decide the champion. If they had a draw, the person with the fastest submission(s) will be the champion. 18 years old and up for the adult division. 16 and 17 year olds can compete in the adult division if they have their parent or legal guardian with them and they sign the waiver for the competitor.
Let the competitors decide the outcome! Nobody wants to pay for a single elimination tournament or have a bad referee. We've removed these elements from the equation.
