Despite the quarantine protocols that have most of the nation under lockdown, Submission Underground was back in action on Sunday night because Chael Sonnen, the brains (and part-time brawn) behind the grappling promotion, does whatever the (expletive) he wants in his home state of Oregon.
The marquee match up of the night, which streamed live on UFC Fight Pass, featured Australian menace Craig Jones taking on ADCC standout Vinny Magalhaes, a bout that ended by way of verbal submission when Magalhaes suffered damage from Jones’ punishing leg locks.
Elsewhere on the main card, Austin Vanderford — “hated” husband of UFC strawweight Paige VanZant — upset the jiu-jitsu apple cart by submitting 10th Planet “Boogeyman” Richie Martinez. In addition, retired MMA slugger Jake Ellenberger got triangled by Brazil’s Gabriel Checco.
