Here are the announced rules for the debut event on January 16:

- All matches must be won by pin, submission, knockout, or DQ unless a substitute stipulation is agreed upon by the grapplers

- Singles and tag/multi-man matches have a 15-minute time limit. Championship matches have a 20 minute time limit.

- There will be a 90 second overtime if there is no winner after the time limit expires. If no one wins in OT, the result is a draw.
