Because submission wrestling comes from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, you'll observe that the two sports share very similar competition rules. Participants or teams who fail to follow these rules can be disqualified from the event. To lose a game, you or your adversary has to quit by tapping the mat or verbally saying it. If this fails to occur, the winner of the fight will be determined by the judges, unless the referee ends the fight for some reason. If the game is a tie, there match will go on overtime, which lasts for 1 minute. If no points are won after the 60 seconds are up, sudden death will settle the winner, by the first person to score a point.
