Polaris 26 preview: Craig Jones, two UFC fighters, and more BJJ stars
The event will be broadcast at UFC Fight Pass, and much like they did for Polaris 25 with former champ Aljamain Sterling, this event will have two UFC fighters to help create some crossover as they ease more MMA fans into the world of professional submission grappling.
BJJ star and two-time ADCC silver medalist Craig Jones will take on UFC fighter Gerald Meerschaert in the main event. Meerschaert apparently holds the record for most submissions in the UFC middleweight division, but if he actually tries to actively engage in this contest, he will likely be in over his head against the B-Team head and one of the (second) best grapplers in the world.
Also on the card, hometown favorite and British UFC star Molly McCann will switch to grappling against Julia Scardone.
Apart from the two crossover matches, there will be some really good BJJ stars featured such as the Polaris women’s title bout between no-gi champs Kendall Reusing and Leticia Cardozo, Tommy Langaker vs. Oliver Taza, and recent ADCC EMEA trials winner Owen Jones among others.
