Polaris Professional Jiu Jitsu Invitational Live Discussion

Talk with fellow grappling nerds and BElitists while you watch the Polaris Professional Jiu Jitsu Invitational.

Wales is playing host to the Polaris Professional Jiu Jitsu Invitational and it features seven great matches with a start time of 6:30PM UTC, 1:30PM EST, 10:30AM PST.

Again, that's this Saturday at 1:30 PM EST (the event may run between 2 and 3 hours, depending on how many fast finishes occur).

The price of the PPV stream is £15 (GBP, not Euros), which is €19.20 and $22.68*.

Ben Thapa put together an outstanding preview of the event, which can be read here. Since he posted it there have been some adjustments as two grapplers have been forced to withdraw and Keenan Cornelius and Dean Lister have been matched up for the main event in a no gi affair.

From top to bottom the matches are as follows:

Keenan Cornelius vs. Dean Lister (no gi)

Marcin Held vs. Garry Tonon (no gi)

Pablo Popovitch vs. Eduardo "Teta" Rios (no gi)

Mike Fowler vs. Eduardo Telles (gi)

A.J. Agazarm vs. Oliver Geddes (no gi)

Kit Dale vs. Victor Silverio (gi)

Angelica Galvao vs. Michelle Nicolini (gi)

The rules are fairly straight-forwards and look a lot like that of Metamoris or Copa Podio. All matches start on the feet. 15 minute matches with no points. A match without a submission finish is declared a draw. Some small level of slamming is allowed and big throws are allowed. Spine cranks are banned (can openers, full nelsons, crucifix, twister etc.). No heelhooks in the gi.

It should be an outstanding evening/afternoon of matches for an extremely reasonable price. If you are interested don't be that guy that complains about how little BJJ athletes make and then pirate everything to avoid paying for it. Throw down the money, support the athletes, and watch should be some excellent limb twisting and neck compressing action.

Stay tuned for results after the event if you are unable to watch and results will also likely be in the comment line.
