Kyle Boehm: Boehm is a 10th Planet black belt and is physically the biggest competitor tonight however don’t let that fool you as he is more than just a physical specimen. He has defeated the likes of Gabriel Almeida, Tex Johnson, and Lucas Barbosa which only goes to show how much of a dangerous submission specialist he is.
Renato Tagliari: Tagliari will be looking to make a name for himself in this contest against Boehm. He is a Caio Terra black belt and has competed in various competitions from IBJJF to EBI and faces some of the highest level of grapplers in the past.
Tanner Weisgram: Weisgram faced Tagliari back in 2019 losing out in a close match, however, he has competed in IBJJF in gi many times and will be looking to impress tonight.
Ronny Markes: MMA veteran Markes has 19 MMA wins, five of them coming by submission and will be looking to bounce back with a win in SUG after losing his promotional debut to Vinny Magalhaes via heel hook submission. He is a black belt under Andre Pederneiras.
Roberto Jimenez: Although he lost to Fowler last year in 2020 SUG absolute tournament and is coming off a loss to Pedro Marinho at Third Coast Grappling, Jimenez is the one to watch for grappling fans as his all-out attack grappling game fits well to SUG ruleset. His cardio and all round submission game will definitely be an advantage .
Adam Smith: Physically the smallest, however size matters not. Smith is a MMA veteran with 20 fights and is yet to lose in SUG earning wins over the likes of Alex Larmey and Benji Silva.
Andrew Sidelinger: 3X Sug veteran and American Top Team black belt, Andrew Sidelinger steps in on just 24hrs notice after UFC vet, Jim Alers withdrew.
Pedro Marinho: Arguably the most decorated jiu-jitsu competitor tonight as an IBBJF Worlds and Pans champion brown belt. Marinho loves guillotine submission and holds wins over Jimenez, Gabriel Almeida, Oliver Taza, and William Tackett.
