Headline superfight announced for Polaris Squads 3

Polaris News

As is becoming tradition with Polaris Squads, there will be a headline superfight at Polaris Squads 3 that will take place during the half-time break of the event. The first two events featured truly memorable performances as Ffion Davies put on a flawless display in submitting Magdalena Loska at the first, and Ashley Williams became the first ever triple-champion by defeating Tom Halpin in a tough match in the second. This time around we will get to see the return of the Polaris UK Grand Prix champion, Freddie Vosgrone, and in keeping with the Team UK & Ireland v Team USA theme of the event, he will be taking on the BJJ Fanatics Grand Prix champion, 10th Planet’s Kyle Boehm.

Vosgrone is undefeated on the Polaris mats and has steadily increased the level of competition he has faced over the years, turning out phenomenal performances each and every time. At the same time, he’s also been busy competing at the highest levels of the IBJJF circuit and making his successful professional MMA debut. Boehm on the other hand has had a lot of success in grand prix-style events and competing under EBI overtime rules, winning the Submission Underground grand prix shortly after his BJJ Fanatics win. He’s already competed against the best that BJJ has to offer, having come up against Gordon Ryan, Nicky Rodriguez, and Lucas ‘Hulk’ Barbosa in the process.

Vosgrone and Boehm will meet under the traditional Polaris ruleset, in a fifteen-minute match that will be judged as three individual sections in the event that there is no submission during the regulation time-period.
