Jimenez vs. Taylor
Kicking off the August 30 main card will be a bout between young phenom Roberto Jimenez and Ultimate Fighter alumni Jesse “JT Money” Taylor. Jimenez has been on fire on the professional grappling circuit but fell short in his last SUG appearance against main event competitor Mason Fowler at SUG 15. Taylor has been actively competing on the grappling scene in both the Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds and Fight 2 Win.
Primus vs. Martinez
Next up Bellator’s Brent Primus will take on the “Boogeyman” himself Richie Martinez. Primus earned a victory against Jake Shields in his last SUG appearance, while Martinez earned a quick armbar victory in overtime at the last Submission Underground event against Kevin Casey.
Loewen vs. Robertson
A match that was expected to go down at SUG 16 will take place in the evening’s co-main event as Amanda Loewen takes on UFC’s Gillian Robertson. Loewen earned an armbar victory in overtime at SUG 16 against late replacement Erin Herle. This will be Robertson’s first SUG appearance.
Submission Underground 17 goes down on August 30 from Portland, Oregon.
