Second title-fight added to Polaris 24

Polaris 27

Along with the headline match between Ashley Williams and Ryan Hall, another title-fight has just been added to Polaris 24 as the co-main event.

Jed Hue and Mateusz Szczecinski will be battling it out for the welterweight title on 3rd June, 2023, as Edwin Najmi has now vacated the title. Hue is a fan-favourite on the Polaris mats and has a perfect 4-0 record in superfights along with several matches representing Team UK & Ireland in Polaris Squads, and a fantastic run in the middleweight grand prix. Hue made it all the way to the final despite competing up in weight and really put the eventual champion Roberto Jimenez to the test in their match.

Szczecinski also competed up in weight for the middleweight grand prix, although he wasn’t able to make it out of the opening round. Regardless, the fearsome Polish leglocker is known all across Europe as being an incredibly difficult opponent for anyone. He was even invited to compete in the 77kg division at ADCC 2022 and pulled off a brilliant submission win in the opening round against William Tackett, announcing his arrival on the world stage in impressive fashion.
