The last three Polaris events were a bit unorthodox, as they followed a unique team format called Polaris Squads. However, Polaris is making a return to their traditional superfight format on October 9!
It’s been announced that Polaris 17 will feature a middleweight title fight between Craig Jones and Davi Ramos.

CRAIG JONES VS. DAVI RAMOS
Jones previously won the middleweight title at Polaris 6 with a Heel Hook finish against Jake Shields; and has then successfully defended it against Matheus Lutes. However, he hasn’t been active in consistently defending his title up until now… Mainly due to the fact that he went for the light heavyweight division title as well! There, he defeated Keenan Cornelius via decision and became a double champion.
Other than that, it’s important to mention that Craig’s success and improvement rates have been growing at a fast pace since 2019; when he competed in the ADCC and earned silver.
Ramos is an MMA veteran who competed seven times in the UFC since 2017. But he’s a BJJ black belt-level competition veteran as well, whose biggest accomplishments were on the 2015 ADCC world championships – when he tapped out Leandro Lo and Gilbert Burns.
Most recently, he competed in the Fight To Win 182, where he lost in the last second (literally, watch it here) against Dante Leon.
