Jed Hue to challenge Edwin Najmi for Welterweight title at Polaris 18

Polaris News

Polaris fan-favorite Jed Hue will get exactly what he asked for in his post-match interview after emerging victorious against Brazilian Fight Factory’s Kody Steele at Polaris 17. He won a tough match that went to decision to keep his undefeated Polaris record but as always, put on a fantastic show for the fans.

In the interview, Hue decided to call out the current Polaris welterweight champion Edwin Najmi, a Romulo Barral black belt who also happens to be known for an exciting grappling style. Najmi will no doubt be a very tough opponent for Hue and stands as the biggest challenge of his career to date, but the pair’s styles will almost certainly deliver one of the most exciting matches in Polaris history.

Additionally, this match will take place on the upcoming Polaris 18 card on November 27th in Newport, Wales, in place of the originally scheduled Polaris Squads 4 where Team Europe were set to defend their gi title. Instead, Polaris Squads 4 will be postponed until 2022 and Team Europe will return then.
