September 24, 2005


Mössingen, Germany



On September 24th 2005, the "Ultimate Grappling Challenge" will mark a new area in international Grappling

competition in Europe. What has begun as a small "Insiders-Only" tournament five years ago has now grown

to one of the biggest and toughest Grappling and MMA competitions on the whole European continent. The

sixth edition of the "Ultimate Grappling Challenge (UGC)" has assigned 196 competitors from 15 countries of

America, Asia and Europe so far and the number is still growing with every day.


This year the organizers from Shidokan Germany have split the field of competitors into two divisions:

"Beginners" and "Advanced." While the Beginners still fight with points and time-limits, the competitors in

the Advanced division will have NO time-limits and NO points in their fights. The only way to win a match at

the UGC in this division is by submission!


Numerous champions and top-level athletes from BJJ, Luta Livre, Wrestling, Shooto, Pancrase and Judo

have registered to compete in this battle of will and skill in the Jahnhalle in Mössingen. A complete list of

competitors as well as some interviews with some of the top contenders in this years division can be viewed

on our website at www.ultimate-grappling-challenge.com where you can also download a complete set of

rules and necessary information about the event.
