With the addition of four more matches, the prelim card for Polaris 18 is almost as stacked with talent as the main card will be later that night.
Joshua Williams, brother and training partner of Polaris triple champ Ashley, will be competing in the gi just like his brother later on and he will be coming up against Chris Haueter black belt and Factory BJJ coach Adam Adshead in what will be a tough matchup. They’re not alone either as Polaris veteran Ashley Amos will also be wearing his gi for the night as he takes on fellow Welshman Aled Rees, who will be making his Polaris debut.
Bringing a fine sense of balance, the remaining two matches on the preliminary card will both be no gi. 10th Planet brown belt and coach Tom Cellamere will be taking on a fantastic wrestler in Oli Coles, who has represented Wales in the Commonwealth games in the past and is a multiple-time British national medalist. In the remaining match, Ashley Amos’s young student Finn Carey will be looking to make a name for himself in his Polaris debut against Jamie Dicks; who was recently promoted to brown belt under Joshua Williams after winning the British open as a purple belt.
