Polaris Squads 4 returns to Newport

Polaris 28

After a short return to the traditional superfight format with Polaris 17, Squads is back! The fourth event of it’s kind will take place in Newport, South Wales once again and will be contested in the gi for just the second time. The event will take place on November 27th at the ICC Arena and will also include a stacked preliminary card featuring some of the best up-and-coming talent from across the UK & Ireland.

The main event will see the reigning Squads gi champions Team Europe defending their title against some of the best grapplers in the world across two sixty-minute halves of non-stop grappling action. During the half-time break, Polaris triple champion Ashley Williams will maintain his 100% appearance record for Squads events when he takes the stage to defend one of his titles. Coming in fresh off his stunning victory at the ADCC trials, Williams is in fine form after finishing four out of his five opponents and becoming just one of two fighters from the UK to qualify at the event.

The full lineup for both Team Europe and the challenging team will be announced shortly.
