For grappling junkies this is a match you need to watch over and over again. At Polaris 3 the great ongoing question in martial arts once again popped up; can expert technique overcome a clear size disadvantage? When two black belts meet in the center of the mat can Garry Tonon’s edge in pure movements stuff out Rousimar Palhares’ unquestioned strength and skill set?
Now thanks to Polaris, you can watch the entire Tonon versus Palhares grappling dual in its entirety. Marvel at the slams, gasp at the submission attempts, and mouth “holy shit” at both men’s near finishing sequences. Garry Tonon danced with the Rousimar Palhares beast and lived to tell the tale, now watch it for yourself.
