Take a look at this page and you'll get a little insight on the AGON group.
Seems they have their own rules and are attempting to help wrestlers transition to MMA while holding their own events.
What I find most interesting is that it's widely regarded that the numerous different rules and changes in wrestling were a strong contributing factor to its being removed from the Olympics. A group like this only serves to further muddy the water.
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
one of the things that wrestlers have been known for in MMA is their endurance... and imo I attribute that to the lack of time between rounds... its probably less then 15 seconds between rounds and that creates incredibly conditioned athletes.. I hope that this rule set does not continue in that sense...
I also think that the "each round is different" approach could lead to more entertaining bouts (eg. Askren vs Wright maybe Wright could have won round 2 and made the match more entertaining) I think this event was a step in the right direction but needs some adjustments
