Eveyone I worked with at MMA shows always used to joke that I was grappling biased. This is, it’s fair to say, true.
But everytime I get to commentate a Polaris Jiu-Jitsu Invitational event, I’m reminded why I really do love the sport of submission grappling.
Polaris 3 took place at the Lighthouse Centre in Poole right down on the south coast of England. The card was, as always, stacked top to bottom with a main event that many people couldn’t even belive was happening: Garry Tonon vs Rousimar Palhares! The ultimate leglock battle.
Check out the cool behind-the-scenes highlight below!
Oh and by the way…I got my Toquinho ADCC 2011 style man-hug!
