Polaris 17 gets first prelim and another main card matchup

Polaris 28

The main card for Polaris 17 has almost finished taking shape as the fourth match has been announced. Returning from his breakout performance at Polaris Squads 3 is Jed Hue, who will be welcoming Brazilian Fight Factory’s Kody Steele to the UK for the very first time in what promises to be an action-packed match. As a Combat Jiu-Jitsu world champion with several victories over elite grapplers, Steele represents a huge opportunity for Hue to make a name for himself with a strong performance.

Alongside the main card, the first preliminary match has also been announced and it features two men who came out on the winning side of their respective preliminary matches on the undercard of Polaris Squads 3. Both Ollie Bates and Jack Sear were given the opportunity to compete at the last event as a result of the New Bloods program and they’re both colored belts training under Polaris veterans. Bates is a purple belt under ‘the Yorkshire Gripper’ Lloyd Cooper, whereas Sear is a brown belt training at London Grapple with head coach Ross Nicholls, and both men will be looking to impress the crowd with a finish.
