Metamoris 4 Fight Card and Preview Video
If you are not familiar with Metamoris it is a 20 minute, submission-only, gi or no-gi matches founded by Ralek Gracie. There are no points given and if there is no submission, a draw is declared. With Chael Sonnen no longer allowed to fight in MMA due to a failed drug test that revealed 4 banned substances Gracie figured he would be perfect to take part in Metamoris and bring attention to the 4th event. Not only do you get Sonnen, but UFC fighter Josh Barnett will be fighting in the co-main event AND something that has never been done before, a secret match.
"The two guys in the secret match won't even know who their opponent is," Metamoris president Ralek Gracie recently said in a recent interview. "They're out there. People know who they are. I was talking to a guy and he was like ‘man, I don't know, that's weird. Training for somebody I don't know.' And I said ‘that's the point.'"
There were many rumors UFC commentator Kenny Florian would be in the secret match but that has been debunked. However, it looks like Florian will be returning as a commentator for Metamoris.
Metamoris 4 takes place August 9, 2014 at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA and stream live as an online pay-per-view for $20.
