Polaris News
The main event for Polaris 19 is finally in the books! It will feature two of the most exciting grapplers on the planet who's styles should make for a fast-paced and wild matchup. Roberto Jimenez is a black belt under his father, Raul, who lives and trains in the United States. The young star has already taken some impressive scalps since receiving his final belt promotion, most notably Keenan Cornelius. It isn't as though that's the only big name on Jimenez's resume though as he has also managed to submit Fellipe Andrew, Pedro Marinho, Nathan Orchard, and Kade Ruotolo in the past. While Jimenez technically has three draws and a win on the Polaris stage, they all came at Polaris Squads 3 and he was one of the most exciting members of the victorious Team USA. Jimenez will be coming up against Magid Hage IV, who is perhaps best known for having one of the best baseball bat chokes in the sport. As this will be a no gi match, it's incredibly unlikely he's able to utilize his most-feared weapon but Hage is still an elite grappler regardless. He's been working hard recently to qualify for ADCC 2022 and has...

Polaris 19 is approaching fast and another two matches have been added to the preliminary card, along with one replacement due to an injury. Akhil Bist has been forced to withdraw from his match against Michael D'aguiar and as a result, Nathan Kay has been called up. Kay is a London Grapple brown belt who recently made his promotional debut in exciting fashion at Polaris 17. Elsewhere on the preliminary card, the welsh presence continues to grow as CF24's Ben Robson will be returning to the Polaris mats after a successful outing last time around. Robson will face off against fellow returning athlete, Luiz Finocchio. Finocchio is an undefeated MMA fighter who has competed for Cage Warriors in the past but has focused on his grappling career more in the last few years, last seen at Polaris 10. The second preliminary match added to Polaris 19 features the debut of an exciting young prospect in Gracie Barra purple belt Jeremy Pare. The 20 year-old recently earned a huge win when he defeated Shane Curtis, who also happens to be competing on the preliminary card of Polaris 19. Pare will be coming up against brown belt and head coach of Mata...

Two more matches have been added to Polaris 19, and one match has been changed as the result of an injury. Josh Williams was forced to withdraw from his match against retired UFC fighter Phil Harris and he will now be replaced by someone who actually competed in the world's premier organization alongside Harris, Paddy Holohan. Holohan amassed a respectable 3-2 record in the promotion before abruptly retiring from MMA competition due to a rare blood disorder. He will be stepping up to the mats for the first time in years at Polaris 19 to take on the tough challenge that Harris will present. Another veteran MMA fighter will be competing on the preliminary card as 'Mr bag and tag' Nathan Jones takes on Polaris veteran Shane Curtis. Jones had over twenty fights on the UK MMA scene over the last few years before being signed to make his debut for Bellator back in 2021. Although Jones is an experienced competitor, they don't come much tougher than his opponent. Curtis has had several exciting performances on the Polaris mats and will be eager to add a big name to his resume. Finally, ADCC European trials 88kg champion Eoghan O'Flanagan will...

Two more matches have been added to the preliminary card for Polaris 19, with both of them featuring exciting Welsh talent facing off against talented Paraestra UK athletes. First up is BJJ black belt Tom Tovey who trains under Ashley Williams at Draig, and he will be coming up against one of his oldest foes Claudio Brudny. Brudny hails from Bournemouth and is a highly-competitive BJJ brown belt who competes out of Ippon Gym in the local area. Elsewhere, Shane Price will be returning to the Polaris stage after his debut against Fred Greenall back at Polaris 12. Price was due to compete at the last event against Owen Livesey but ended up being replaced by Max Bickerton. He will be competing against one of Paraestra Poole's coaches and top competitors Peter Robson, who also has experience on these mats after defeating Konstantinos Chioutakos at Polaris 10.
