    Can we get full results? Can't find any info. Nobody else talking about it. Not even in the grappling forum.

    Just started watching Quintet now. I'm not sure anything can top the refs in shirts and tie demonstrating the illegal techniques at the beginning.

    APRIL 11, 2018 witnessed the birth of “Quintet: Grappling Team Survival Match”, an event that exceeded all expectations in terms of grappling quality and entertainment. With very peculiar rules (more on those here) the 5×5 team proposition made by the organization’s promoter Kazushi Sakuraba remained a mystery up until tonight, as it had not been tested as a mainstream event. The result was an array of outstanding matches.

    With a wide selection of styles on the mats that went from Olympic Judo champions and medalists, to UFC champions, PRIDE Fc legends, Sambo world champions and ADCC podium placers, the event had a strong hint of that notorious old school style vs style clash. If the idea was to test each of these grappling training methods against each other, one could easily make the claim that Jiu Jitsu came out the victor. This was thanks to the outstanding performances of Craig Jones, Dan Strauss, Marcin Held and even Marcos de Souza.

    The event ended with a dominating victory by the Polaris Jiu Jitsu Invitational Dream Team, one that was also the most international squad of the event with a mix of Polish, English, Australian, Japanese and Brazilian players. Below are the full results of each match held at Sakuraba’s Quintet tournament. Hopefully we will see more of this coming through from the promotion.

    SEMI FINALS, HALEO vs JUDO

    Daisuke Nakamura [Haleo] vs Michihiro Omigawa [Judo] – draw
    Kazushi Sakuraba [Haleo] vs Shutaro Debana [Judo] – draw
    Hideo Tokoro [Haleo] vs Hyun Jun Kim [Judo] – Tokoro by armbar from Imanari roll
    Hideo Tokoro [Haleo] vs Dong Sik Yoon [Judo] – Yoon by Ezekiel inside closed guard
    Marcos de Souza [Haleo] vs Dong Sik Yoon [Judo] – Souza by armbar from mount
    Marcos de Souza [Haleo] vs Satoshi Ishii [Judo] – draw

    SEMI FINALS, POLARIS vs SAMBO

    Craig Jones [Polaris] vs Mindaugas Verzbickas [Sambo] – kneebar from 50/50 guard
    Craig Jones [Polaris] vs Sergei Grecicho [Sambo] – draw
    Marcin Held [Polaris] vs Viktor Tomasevic [Sambo] – kneebar from open guard
    Marcin Held [Polaris] vs Teodoras Aukstuolis [Sambo] – kneebar/Dogbar from bottom
    Marcin Held [Polaris] vs Marius Zaromskis [Sambo] – draw

    FINALS, POLARIS vs HALEO

    Gregor Gracie [Polaris] vs Josh Barnett [Haleo] – draw
    Dan Strauss [Polaris] vs Daisuke Nakamura [Haleo] – RNC
    Dan Strauss [Polaris] vs Hideo Tokoro [Haleo] – Strauss by mounted guillotine
    Dan Strauss [Polaris] vs Kazushi Sakuraba [Haleo] – draw

    Yes, it was awesome and much more exciting than other grappling competitions I've seen.

    The team format absolutely works IMO.

    I just finished watching it.... it was FANTASTIC! The team format was great, the matches were fast, not boring at all.

    4 minutes was too short for the weight-difference matches though.... I'd like to see it increased at least to 5.... We lost a lot of time when they were resetting during the Barnett fight, which was a shame.

    Can't wait for the next one. I'm in.

    Looking forward to catching the replay for sure.

    Can’t make heads or fucking tales out of their scoreboards/rankings though, fucks sake

    Don't look at it too closely if you care about winners and losers.
