This Sunday, July 18, the Submission Underground (SUG) 25 will take place. It’s going to be a stacked and extremely exciting card! Here’s the full line-up preview.
SUBMISSION UNDERGROUND 25 MAIN EVENT: MARINHO VS. VARELA
Pedro Marinho is a Gracie Barra representative. He impressed with his first SUG performance; gaining a pair of submission wins over Andrew Sidelinger and Roberto Jimenez. He has an aggressive style with a Guillotine as his power-move.
Andy Varela, on the other hand, is a 10th Planet representative and an eight-match veteran of the SUG. Back in April this year, he lost his SUG title match against Mason Fowler; but then bounced back with a win over Rafael Domingos.
CO-MAIN EVENT: NAJMI VS. KENNEDY
A black belt under Romulo Barral, Edwin Najmi is one of the most entertaining Jiu-Jitsu athletes; but hasn’t competed since 2020, when he lost to Kody Steele by decision.
