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 Leao BJJ in Bradford, Ben Bennett.
