ADCC and UFC vet Jeff ‘The Snowman’ Monson was supposed to participate at Metamoris 6 and to face the winner of the show ‘The Road to Metamoris’, Jimmy Friedrich.
Many grappling fans made false assumptions about his non participation. Monson was eventually replaced by Evandro Nunes and the match with Friedrich ended in a draw when Nunes was able to shut down the Atos grappler’s leg attacks.
Monson revealed on Twitter the real reason why he didn’t compete.
My mom passed away. I will be in next #METAMORIS. This is a very difficult time & I appreciate those who have contacted me with condolences
