    Get really really really good at sub wrestling. I don't know to be honest but I don't think I have to worry about it for a while.

    There are qualifier tournaments. Eddie Bravo talks about them in his new book.

    Tell the tournament directors that you are the long lost as-yet-unknown son of Rickson, and then pass a DNA paternity test to prove it...they MIGHT give you a special invite.

    Regionals are North American, European, Brazil/South America, Japan/Oceania, if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't think Royler does it anymore because he's already won it 4 times and he's interested in exploring his MMA opportunities (which pay better, too).

    Legally change your last name to Gracie. That's what I did, and I got invited.

    You'll get an invite when you start tapping the likes of those who are at the top level.

    If you don't have much recognition you have to go through the qualifiers. You're guaranteed a spot if you win the qualifier. If you performed well and finish in the top 3 you might get an invitation. Royler Gracie doesn't need to do any of these. Guys at his level get special invitations to participate.

    and also Royler didn't win it "99-01" It's every other year. So that would imply a three year winning streak.

    Just so you know, I am going in 09.

    Superfights are designed to pit two big name, big talent fighters against each other to bring in as many spectators as possible (uh, just like the superfight in any event).
    Options are the defending absolute champion, the defending superfight champion, a previous absolute champion, a previous weight-class champion, or any other big name fighter who accepts the superfight invite.
