Fans in the competitive female grappling industry are always in great anticipation of female wrestling events since there are so few of them.
One group that puts on an event exceptionally well is Fight Pulse in the Czech Republic. To our delight they have a wonderful line up.
Let’s have them introduce the event.
2016 Fight Pulse Lightweight Championship
The wait is over! Dear Subscribers and Visitors, it’s time for the annual female wrestling championship in the lightweight division (up to 65 kg)! Exactly a year has passed since we held our first championship, which produced some very popular F/F matches, the championship title match between Zoe and Akela, FW-21, quickly becoming a best-seller.
Many of you have asked us during the last two months about the line-up of this championship, which goes to show the excitement of fans in competitive tournaments. We are just as excited as you are, dear fans. So, without further ado, here’s the roster of the event:
General information & release schedule
8 competitors will be wrestling for the title of Fight Pulse Lightweight Wrestling Champion, this trophy, and prize money. The latter is awarded for the first 3 places. The prize money for the champion this year is five-fold the amount given to the winner of the 2015 championship.
The tournament will be in play-off style, starting with quarter-finals. The original 4 match-ups and the tournament chart will be presented with our first release of the championship, which will also include an introductory segment (video) with interviews with all wrestlers.
The matches will be held under the usual Fight Pulse pins & submissions rules. Each mach will last 12 minutes, except the final match, which will last 15 minutes. If there’s a draw by the end of this time, 3 minutes of overtime will be added without stopping the action (5 extra minutes for the final match). The wrestlers will be informed verbally of overtime start. The first wrestler to achieve a pin or submission during the overtime will be declared the winner. If by the end of overtime the match is still a draw, the winner will be decided by 3 judges based on who was the more offensive and active wrestler of the two.
The tournament will be held on Sunday, 6th of November, 2016. The release schedule of the matches is as follows:
- 08/Nov FW Championship quarter-final match #1
