On Sunday, October 31, Submission Underground will return to action with SUG 28.

Lower on the card is MMA veteran Tara Larosa, former SUG title challenger Kyle Chambers, and frequent SUG competitor Cris Lencioni.

View the full SUG 28 betting odds below.

Rida is a no-gi competitor known for his athleticism and takedown ability. He is a two-time American Nationals no-gi champion, and recently earned third place at the WNO Championships on the strength of wins over ADCC champion Orlando Sanchez and Giancarlo Bodoni. Rida finds himself as a sizable favorite over 10th Planet representative Varela. A one-time SUG title challenger, Varela holds notable SUG wins over Satoshi Ishii and Kevin Casey, and his experience competing under the SUG ruleset could serve him well against SUG newcomer Rida.

In the co-main event, 16-fight pro MMA veteran Guilherme Vasconcelos is an underdog to Aaron Tiegs in a gi match. Tiegs is an impressive 7-0 at SUG.

Lower still on the card, longtime MMA veteran Tara Larosa will make her SUG debut against Medusa and combat jiu-jitsu veteran Juliana Miller, and former SUG title challenger Kyle Chambers will test his dangerous submission skills against Tanner Weisgram.
