Is anyone going to this??

Ian's right 1st and 2nd get flights to Turkey in September.

The rules aren't too different to standard sub wrestling except some of the subs aren't allowed.

Just read right through the holds and the only things that aren't allowed are heel hooks, wristlocks and throws/takedowns using joint locks.

So you can use kneebars if you want to.
