If there is no one in your bracket, our Director will focus on merging brackets with the closest weight class or experience level to ensure you get a match. Our goal is to provide everyone with a safe, fun and competitive experience, and we will not place anyone in brackets that we don’t believe will provide that.
If you do not have any matches available, even in the case of a merged bracket, you will be refunded 100% of the Tournament Fee(s) directly back to your bank account.
If you are unwilling to compete in a merged bracket, but have matches available, you will be refunded 100% of your entry fees in the form of a coupon code for another NUWAY Combat/BJJ Fanatics event.
