Jeff Judo Lawson
Jeff has made a name for himself on the UK scene for throws straight into an arm bar and this is exactly how he stole the show on Polaris 4. In his interview, Paul Bridges said he had never been submitted this fast, ever. You catch watch Jeff's fight below.
Jeff was a part of preliminary card with bouts being 10 mins in duration. You could win by either submitting your opponent or by judges decision. Judges were scoring for effective attacks and aggression, escalating positional control and effective counter attacks and dynamic escapes with any stalling passivity and poor sportsmanship counting against the fighters.
