Submission Underground was conceived along with Flocombat in cooperation with Chael Sonnen. But as things changed the promotion found itself struggling to get promoted the way it was supposed to. This led Chael Sonnen to stream the 7th edition on his youtube channel.
The promotion also changed up the format a bit.
Chael Sonnen’s Submission Underground 7 returns to the Roseland Theater in Portland Oregon for an exciting afternoon of submission grappling.
Multiple-time ADCC medalist and champion, Jeff Monson, faces off against long-time veteran, Fabiano Scherner.
TUF: Redemption winner Jesse Taylor, will compete against Ben Egli, who comes in with a wealth of MMA experience under his own belt.
Gustavo Pires and Carlos Sievert are set for a gi match, while Joe Baize faces off against Mike Dewitt.
* Also featured is an 8-man brown belt tournament.
