Polaris Professional Jiu-Jitsu 4, which took place Oct. 29 in Poole, England, was full of great matches. In the main event, two-time world champion Fernando Tererê made his competitive comeback with a resounding success, beating Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro over a 15-minute fight in the gi.
For most of that time, Shaolin opted to pull Tererê into guard and was able to control him for a whilte. But, playing on top, Tererê imposed his own pace and sought the guard pass, arriving at side control a couple of times. At the end, Shaolin attempted a choke with all his might, but it was not enough to rob Tererê of the win.
The co-main event pitted Garry Tonon against Gilbert Durinho. World BJJ champ Durinho started out strong, perfoming several takedowns and arriving at side control. Tonon kept cool and slowly imposed his own game, trying for his dangerous heel hooks. In the final five minutes, Tonon finally managed to sink the inside heel hook and forced Durinho’s surrender.
AJ Agazarm had another interesting bout against old Pride star Ikuhisa Minowa. After two minutes of studying and some taunting, the Gracie Barra black-belt sought the takedown and got to side control. Then he put his knee on Minowa’s belly and moved to the triangle, where he got the submission.
Following his triumph at the No-Gi Pan, Dillon Danis faced Checkmat’s Jackson Sousa. Sousa sought the takedowns and at one point was almost surprised by a guillotine. Danis also attempted to take down, and in one of those attempts he caught Sousa’s leg to sink the heel hook and end the fight.
