WNO Championships: ‘The Hillbilly Hammer’ Jacob Couch Replaces Pedro Marinho
Now just days away from the blockbuster Who’s Number One (WNO) Championships on September 25-26, the roster shuffling continues. On Monday, FloGrappling announced that “The Hillbilly Hammer” Jacob Couch will replace Pedro Marinho in the 185-pound division. Marinho was himself a replacement for an injured Andrew Wiltse.
