This is not a typical tag team bout; it’s a four-man fight to determine the last fighter standing—every man for himself. Only two fighters are permitted inside the ring at any given time. The initial two fighters to enter the bout will be selected through a fan vote on social media. Fighters have the ability to tag in and out of the action.

Refusing to accept a tag into the ring will result in elimination. A fighter cannot tag the same person consecutively. Any fighter who gets knocked down will be immediately eliminated. Once a fighter is eliminated, the next participant will be chosen clockwise from the corner of the eliminated fighter.

The match consists of four rounds, each lasting three minutes. At the conclusion of each round, the fighters in the ring are swapped out. If multiple fighters remain standing after four rounds, the judges’ scorecards will determine the winner. Fighters are awarded 8-10 points per round based on their performance.

And finally, Any fighter who fails to participate in a given round will be awarded 9 points.KSI
