Tons of talent, not a lot of action

"For those of you looking to see the best of the best grapplers from UFC and Pride (Ortiz, Kerr, Belfort, Hughes, Sperry etc) competing in the most prestigious submission grappling tournament in the world, this is the DVD for you. For those people looking for all these great submission experts to be placed in the greatest submission grappling tournament in the world with tons of "action", this probably isn't the DVD for you.It's important to remember that this is a submission grappling tournament. That means the majority of the matches are going to be spent either stalking, the guard, side mount, or mounted position. If you hate these positions and want something with a faster pace, then this is not the DVD for you.This DVD IS for:
-People who don't mind when UFC or Pride fights stay in the guard for 5+min (in this case without striking)
-People who understand the very technical aspects of grappling instead of seeing people "Just lying there"
-People who can appreciate ground grapplingThis DVD is NOT for:
- People who want tons of action
- People who don't understand submission grappling strategy (position and points)
- People who look for the "ground and pound" seen in UFC and Pride
- People who hate when matches go to the groundThe broad casting quality is decent. They have different camera angles, but is no where close to the quality we're use to in NHB competitions (KOC, UFC, Pride). I give this DVD 3 stars because it gives THE best submission experts in the world, puts them in a tournament and delivers what it says it does. On the other hand, even for someone who studies BJJ with a Gracie, I found a lot of the matches kind of slow myself."
This is a great DVD if you are a serious grappler

"I love this DVD but i must reiterrate this is for the serious grappler / grappling enthusiast. This is not for the casual wrestling / MMA fan."
