Quintet Ultra Results

Kazushi Sakuraba’s Quintet cements itself as a top tier submission grappling competition with Quintet Ultra – a fun concept and an exciting ruleset.  The team grappling approach is very promising, especially when the teams are some of the best organizations in MMA history: UFC, PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC.

With Gilbert Burns as their anchor, UFC fought to the last man to win the first Quintet Ultra title, defeating the PRIDE and Strikeforce teams in a grueling team submission battle.
