UAEJJF Announce New Weigh-In Rule That Will Make Competing Easier

An important change in the weigh-in regulations in UAEJJF events was recently announced effective from November 1, 2018. 

Competitors at UAEJJF events– such as the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam events and the Abu Dhabi World Pro– will no longer weigh in while wearing the gi. 

Instead, competitors must weigh in with shorts and T-shirt as per the official rules and regulations

3.3. WEIGH-IN

Athletes may only weigh up and fight if they are carrying an ID (identity document) with a photograph, otherwise, the athlete will be disqualified

The official weigh in dress:

Players must be with minimum a non-transparent T-shirt and shorts covering up to the knees. Otherwise player can weigh in wearing kimono pants and T-shirts. Singlets and small shorts are not allowed.

Until now, competitors needed to weigh in while wearing the gi, which can weigh up to 2.2lb (1kg) or more. 

FloGrappling will live stream the UAEJJF Abu Dhabi Grand Slam Rio de Janeiro – watch it live or check the archives for videos of the matches.
