Polaris Pro Grappling returns today for the second time in as many months with Polaris 18, coming live from the International Convention Centre in Newport, South Wales, UK.
The main event is at featherweight, as three-division Polaris champion Ashley Williams puts on the gi to take on multiple-time IBJJF World and Pan-Am champion Paulo Miyao.
The co-main event was set to have Edwin Najmi defend his welterweight title against the outspoken organization staple Jed Hue. However, Najmi was forced to pull out of the contest on Thursday due to injury. Stepping in is another outspoken competitor as former Bellator fighter AJ Agazarm looks to earn his first win back on the competitive grappling scene after being released by the organization.
On the back of a submission win in his MMA debut, Quintet veteran “Fatninja” Igor Tanabe makes his Polaris debut against Norwegian organizational mainstay Tommy Langaker in a gi match. On the other end of the MMA spectrum, UFC veteran Stevie Ray competes for the first time since 2019 in his second Polaris outing against Craig Ewers.
MMA Sucka has fans covered with up-to-date Polaris 18 results, with the main card starting at 2pm ET/11am PT on UFC Fight Pass, preceded by the preliminary card starting at 11am ET/8am PT on the Polaris YouTube page
