This Sunday (July 12, 2020), Chael Sonnen will present the 16th installment of the submission-only grappling competition Submission Underground 16 from Portland, Oregon. The event will begin at 6 p.m. (ET) and features some of the biggest names in MMA and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Grappling oddsmaker Ozzy Perez just sent out his opening betting odds for the Submission Underground 16 moments ago, as well as a write-up on the top two matches.
Craig Jones vs Mason Fowler
“Craig Jones is back in his familiar spot at the top of the card. Jones has really gained notoriety through these SUG events and his submission dominance. Jones faces a familiar foe in Mason Fowler the winner of last months 8 man tournament to earn this spot. This will be a rematch, the original match took place at ADCC 2019 and ended with a Guillotine by Jones with less than 1 minute left. It is considered one of the best matches from the event. Fowler’s has the ability to hang with Jones on the mat but he is not very submission oriented. He showed his ability to get the choke at SUG 15 in OT but no one has even come close to escaping Jones in overtime.”
Amanda Lowen vs Gilian Robertson
“The co-main event has SUG veteran Amanda Lowen faces her 2nd consecutive UFC fighter, this time taking on submission specialist Gillian Robertson. This should be a fun match, Robertson is known for her aggression and is a real submission chaser. Lowen is the more proven submission grappler but Robertson will not be completely out of her depth in any position.”
The event also features other grappling matches involving UFC veterans Jake Ellenberger and Kevin Casey.
