Imanari is stepping in for injured Ashley Williams who had to back out earlier in the week.
Unfortunately due to injury, Ash Williams has had to pull out of his title bout with Nicky Ryan. ⠀

Masakazu Imanari, coming off a very closely contested split decision loss to Ash in the semi-finals of our featherweight bracket, steps in to replace him, and the veteran grappler has only one thing on his mind for this match – to give everything he has to take the Polaris featherweight belt. ⠀

Standing in his way is Nicky Ryan, who wants to go down in history as the greatest grappler of all time, starting with becoming the Polaris featherweight champion. ⠀

Polaris 8⠀
December 9⠀

– official announcement reads.

There is a massive 50% OFF  SALE on Video Instructionals at BJJ Fanatics, which feature quality instructionals from Tom DeBlass, Craig Jones, Dean Lister, Bernardo Faria and many more….(Type in the code ‘BJJEE” and you will receive a further 10% discount on your purchases)

Interestingly Nicky Ryan was rumored to have a health issue as he was absent from the ADCC North American East Coast Trials that happened over the last weekend. Some speculate he had a base case of staph while others heard at the event his ankle/knee are injured.

Polaris also announced another match on the card

Pedro Bessa is one of the most well-established Brazilian black belts in the South West. Seeing as Polaris 8 is being held in Cardiff, it would be remiss of us not to include Pedro on this epic card. Pedro will fight one of the top prospects in Europe – Santeri Lilius, who is from Finland but lives in Spain. ⠀ ⠀ Both of these fighters are hungry for a submission and to show the most exciting gi match they can. ⠀ ⠀ Polaris 8⠀ December 9⠀ Ice Arena Wales, Cardiff⠀ Doors 4pm, Prelims 5pm, Main Card 7pm⠀ buff.ly/2OMMjGM ⠀ Broadcast on @ufcfightpass⠀ ⠀ Please give our sponsors a follow: ⠀ @canavapecbd⠀ @made4fightersuk⠀ @bitcoin.com_official⠀ @scramblebrandofficial ⠀ @tatamifightwear
