    Pretty awesome. These shows are like Metamoris, but overall more fun to watch.

    They have a really bizarre but interesting rule set. I hope more competitions start using EBI rules, seems super fun.Fight pass is getting to actually be worth the money.

    Wow I'm happy for Eddie Bravo. EBI will become the premiere BJJ event. Screw Metamoris and the corrupt Gracies.

    I don't understand how its just now becoming worth it. If you like combat sports it's been essential since its launch lol.

    Not exactly, it only showed some mma fights from the past and some live events. Now it shows live jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, mma and their library has over 100 k-1 events. This is mind-blowing! I didnt believe that i would ever buy fight pass, but now i simply cant pass it :3

    When it first came out the library wasn't that impressive and a lot of fights I hadn't been able to see due to being buried in prelims, weren't yet available. It also used to take longer for event replays to play on it. Even now it still needs work, I was trying to find the Nguyen vs Ozkilic fight last night and it wasn't there, had to search for the event load the prelims and skip through till I found the fight. Can't find Scoggins Vs Ortiz on there either. I don't know if I'd call it essential but it's getting better and better.

    Probably not going to dish out for fight pass at this point, but I like the direction they're going in.

    I hate letting Dana have an extra nickel but fightpass is worth $10 a month unless you're the unabomber or something. If the layout was killer it'd really nice 'cause the content's good.

    Why does Bravo have an avatar of him singing and playing guitar? Does anyone here listen to his music?

    Ya Ralek looks really bad trying to make guys sign contracts so that they can't grapple anywhere else. It's like, calm down bro you aren't the friggin UFC.

    Do they just have no time limit and go until someone taps?

    Overtime.

    Kinda like the 3rd OT in College Football... you start at the 25 yard line... you have to go for the TD (no FGs) and if you score the other team gets a chance to score too. If they both "score" the Submission, the faster time wins.

    If no one scores, they go to the fasted time escaping.
