Polaris 3 Headliner: Garry Tonon vs Rousimar Palhares confirmed

Hide yo legs, hide yo ankles...

Garry "The Lion Killer" Tonon x Rousimar Palhares is going down at Polaris Pro 3, which will be held April 2 in the UK.

Live tickets on sale here.

Garry Tonon is on a quest to prove himself the best grappler on the planet. Although he has phenomenal all-around jiu jitsu, he's particularly adept in the leglock game. Until recently only a select few really understood the leglock game, let alone could apply it well in competition. Marcin Held had a number of submission wins by leglock in high level MMA, and Garry took him on at Polaris 1. The legendary Japanese leglock master Masakazu Imanari, too, fell to the technicality of Tonon at Polaris 2.

Now Rousimar "Toquinho" Palhares, the man who leglocked his way to notoriety in the 2011 ADCC and more recently in the UFC and WSOF, is here to stop Tonon in his tracks.
