Metamoris has released a trailer for their 5th event that will take place November 22nd.
The big main event they announced is a grappling battle between Renzo Gracie and Kazushi Sakuraba. These two men had a fight in 2000 for Pride that helped develop Sakuraba as a legend in Mixed Martial Arts when he broke Renzo’s arm.
This match is being used as a device to draw in fans who remember the legendary mixed martial arts fight. Metamoris, as shown by its previous shows, does a good job of signing an interesting main event that will draw in non-fans of grappling with some interesting match-ups on the under card that will make hardcore fans of grappling salivate. Metamoris also does a great job of introducing each of the match-ups with short form 24/7 UFC countdown style feature.
As each of the features gets posted to the official Metamoris YouTube page, I will give my thoughts on the match-ups. Each of the match-ups will be contested on a single white mat with UFC veteran-turned commentator Kenny Florian and Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Jeff Glover providing the commentary. The match-ups are 20 minutes to a single submission. This style of matchup is even unique to what you would see at the biggest grappling tournaments.
Below is the card as it currently stands.
Kazushi Sakuraba vs Renzo Gracie
Rory McDonald vs J.T. Torres
Yuri Simoes vs Rafael Lovato Jr.
Vinny Magalhaes vs Kevin Casey
Garry Tonon vs Zak Maxwell
