Grapplers Quest is returning to the UFC Fan Expo scene this July in Las Vegas with its sixth official grappling tournament.

The tournament will span two days, July 6-7, and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center will play host.

On Friday, adult no-gi grappling divisions will compete in a tournament, while the following day, all-youth no-gi grappling and all-adult Brazilian jiu-jitsu and judo division tournaments will take place.

Individuals interested can register now for $99 in order to secure one of 1,500 competitor slots available. The price tag for registration also includes full access to both days of the UFC Fan Expo, a Tapout t-Shirt, a $20 discount from at-the-door pricing, and access to the UFC Fan Expo Judo Throwdown Tournament. In all, the value rounds out around the $150 mark.

Past Grapplers Quest events at the UFC Fan Expo have drawn major pro names, including Takanori Gomi, Shane Roller, Caol Uno, Rolles Gracie and Joe Stevenson.

The UFC Fan Expo and grappling tournament will coincide with the UFC’s July 7 pay-per-view event, which will be held in Las Vegas, as well. UFC 148 will feature a main event bantamweight title fight between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber and also includes a light heavyweight rematch between former champions Forrest Griffin and Tito Ortiz, a bout which will conclude their trilogy as well as the legendary career of “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy.”
