Submission Underground 9

This highly anticipated matchup between heavyweights headlines SUG 9. In the co-headlining feature, another former UFC standout does battle with an extremely highly touted jiu-jitsu practitioner. Former UFC heavyweight champion, Gabriel Gonzaga takes on the infamous, Fabiano Scherner

The final main card bout pits slippery jiu-jitsu player and MMA fighter, Micah Brakefield takes on Kevin Casey. Brakefield is known for his exciting jiu-jitsu attack inside the cage. With an opponent such as Kevin Casey, the high-flying style of Brakefield should be dialed down at least a small bit. 

On the preliminary card, tag team rules take over. Eight teams compete on the card. These rules have two competitors from each team inside the cage during the match. Non-active fighters must have one hand on the cage at all times. Not only must they touch the cage but they are confined to a single corner. One round consists of the entire match, eight minutes comprise this one round. In the eight minutes, submissions are cumulative and the team with the most submissions by the end of the match wins. If the match ends in a tie after 8 minutes, the winner is chosen by crowd applause noise level. 

The eight teams included in SUG 9 are American Top Team, 10th Planet, Desert Dogs, Brazilian Top Team Happy Valley, Scherner JJ, Solid Base, NGSF, and Impact JJ. Despite the team tournament action, two grappling super fights break up the action. Eddie Flowers takes on Josh Manfredi, Anthony Bennett battles Talan Leon Guerrero and Jake Blaski vs. Mike Currier.
