Countdown to Metamoris: Chael Sonnen vs. Andre Galvao

One of the more talked about matches of August's Metamoris event is Chael Sonnen vs. Andre Galvao.

Metamoris is on the rise as a premier event in combat sports. Attracting big names from the MMA and BJJ community, it's continued to shine a more spectator friendly light on sport grappling. Next month's Metamoris 4 event looks to be no different, with a number of big name fighters and grapplers set to face off in high profile submission-only matches. This time around the roster includes Josh Barnett, Keenan Cornelius, Vinny Magalhaes, and, of course, Chael Sonnen vs. Andre Galvao.

Sonnen talked about his roots in wrestling and its intersections with BJJ in Metamoris' Countdown series:

When I got to college, I wrestled for, head coach, a gentleman named Mark Schultz. Now, Mark Schultz is one of the baddest men to ever walk this earth. He is a three time world champion, Olympic gold medalist, and he fought Rickson Gracie in a street fight for 44 minutes. He lost. And he told me, that nothing beats wrestling, except Jiu Jitsu.

But of course, that's just the beginning, check out the whole thing and get hyped for some submission only action.
