Urijah Faber Books 5-On-5 Grappling Event Bout

Grappling legend Kazushi Sakuraba has found great success with his new Quintet Grappling Invitational events. Now it would appear that the grappling phenom will have UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber competing on his next card.

Quintet Grappling is a kachinuki style tournament in which an individual faces off against a new opponent from the opposing team until he loses or wins the tournament. As soon as a grappler loses, another competitor from the grappler’s five person team steps in.

On Oct. 5, Quintent Grappling 3 will be taking place in Las Vegas, Nev. The event will be broadcast live via UFC Fight Pass, the UFC’s proprietary streaming service.

The UFC has since released an official promo video for the event, revealing that UFC Hall of Famer and founder of Team Alpha Male Urijah Faber will be competing within the tournament.
