At Submission Underground 10 (SUG 10) Australian grappling phenom Craig Jones stated he was interested in partnering up with the king Gordon Ryan at the next Submission Underground event. To up the ante, President Chael Sonnen said he would put $25,000 on the line to any team willing to compete against the two leg lock monsters. Unfortunately, Ryan has pulled out of the event, but his teammate Nicky Rodriguez has offered to step in and take his place.
