Despite all the recent turmoil with competitors pulling out because of fear of non payment, the Metamoris 7 event is going on as planned on July 17th albeit with a totally new fight card.
The initial full card was:
ROGER GRACIE vs. MARCUS ALMEIDA “BUCHECHA”
GABRIEL GONZAGA vs. SATOSHI ISHI (Olympic Gold Medalist in Judo).
DILON DANNIS vs. GILBERT “DURINHO” BURNS
RALEK GRACIE vs. TIM SPRIGGS
YURI SIMOES vs. MATHEUS DINIZ
Now the troubled organisation has jus released the update card:
Ralek Gracie vs Garry Tonon
Jeff Glover vs Bruno Malfacine
Satoshi Ishi vs Vladimir Matyushenko
Fabio Leopoldo vs Kendall Grove
Richie Martinez vs Kevin Casey
Stephen Martinez vs Morgan Neidlinger
The professional grappling promotion, Metamoris, and most notably its founder Ralek Gracie has been under fire for the past few months for various reasons.
-Scheduling events on the same weekend as EBI and the same day as Copa Podio
-Disrespecting Female Competitors
-Untrustworthy Online Site and Automatic Renewals
-Not paying Metamoris Challenger/Underground Competitors, and staff (Including Agazarm who is owed 2,000$ since August 2015).
