Jiu-jitsu and grappling promotion Metamoris has made a name for itself over the past two years by staging Internet pay-per-view events with some of grappling’s biggest names. Starting this Friday, Metamoris will begin airing smaller events called “The Underground” at a discounted price.
The first event of the new series will be headlined by judo world champion and UFC veteran Karo Parisyan taking on decorated jiu-jitsu player J.T. Torres. As with all Metamoris bouts, the rules call for a submission-only, 20-minute match. If neither man scores a submission inside the time limit, the bout will be deemed a draw.
Also set to compete on the card is UFC, Pride and WEC veteran Jeff Curran squaring off against current UFC fighter Pedro Munhoz in a no-gi match. Set to compete in a no-gi match as well will be Stephen Martinez and Josh Hinger.
The telecast will also feature two gi matches. Chelsea Leah will take on Gezary Matuda in the women’s division while Moku Kahawai will compete against Evandro Nunes.
Metamoris “The Underground” will cost $5.99 and will be streamed live starting at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The PPV will be free for all current Metamoris subscribers.
