We all know that grappling events are unpredictable, since we can’t predict when or if submissions will happen. But here is the estimated time that matches will happen, assuming most matches go nearly the full 20 minutes and assuming nothing unpredictable happens.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: WE WILL KEEP MATCHES GOING IF SUBMISSIONS HAPPEN EARLY ON.** As long as the athletes in the following matches are warmed up, we will keep the show going. So if they match you most want to see is tentatively scheduled for 3:40, please do not show up at 3:30, because you might well miss it.
Again, these times are what happens if basically every match goes to points, so please use this as a general guide and not 100% what’s going to happen on the day of the event.

We expect a lot of spectators, and the more the merrier. Here are some details about that for spectators.
We’re asking for a suggested donation of $5 admission for standing room, $10 if you’re going to use a chair or sit on the mat. We can take either cash or checks, but not cards. All of that money will go directly to the Durham Animal Protection Society.
Of course, you’ll be able to buy Toro BJJ and Cageside MMA gear throughout the event. Watch for special deals.
We will livestream the event, so you can follow the matches if you can’t attend. The stream will be embedded at ToroBJJ.com.
You can also watch from the Toro Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCijNiwCiuGiLGuuDGjS0MRQ
We will have burgers and hot dogs on the grill and Yellow Bear Bakery treats.
There are other food options that are walkable, including a grocery store and Bojangles. Our helpful volunteers can also recommend food options that people can drive to!
