Chael Sonnen’s Submission Underground makes its debut on UFC Fight Pass Sunday, with a star-studded lineup of MMA notables scheduled to compete.
And because you know there’s bound to be something a little crazy on the card if Sonnen is involved, the event will feature some tag-team grappling, as well.
Submission Underground 8 takes place Sunday at Roseland Theater in Portland, Ore. The submission-only grappling card streams in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass at 6 p.m. ET.
Additional featured contests include UFC veterans Jake Ellenberger vs. Diego Sanchez in a rematch of their 2012 UFC “Fight of the Night,” multiple-time grappling world champion and Gracie Barra Portland coach Fabiano Scherner vs. former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir, MMA pioneer Dennis Hallman vs. Australian grappling sensation Craig Jones and big-show veteran Pat Healy against former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez.
Eight two-person teams will also hit the mats for the night’s tag-team grappling competitions, including affiliate representatives from 10th Planet, Brazilian Top Team, Straight Blast Gym and more.
