Grapple Fest are starting their 2019 calendar with a bang.
Fresh off a highly successful 2018, Grapple Fest have announced a stellar card for their show in Liverpool, England on February 23rd. Initially the promotion had booked a strong match-up between Jackson Sousa and Craig Jones, but unfortunately Souza was forced out due to an injury. Luckily for us, Grapple Fest have found a worthy opponent to step in.
Fresh off a victorious King of the Mats run in Abu Dhabi, Gabriel Arges has signed on the dotted line to face the master of the Z Guard, Craig Jones in what has all the makings of a great match.
Craig Jones’ rise to prominence was meteoric and his ADCC 2017 performances have earned him a special place in the hearts of grappling fans, but after a decision victory against Matheus Diniz last time out at Grapple Fest, Jones will be eager to get the finish.
