Submission Underground 4: Danis vs Shields, Miyao vs Faber, Burns vs Combs et al

Amidst an ousting from longtime gym and a supposed Bellator MMA debut, Danis faces Jake Shields. Not to be a one-trick pony, Submission Underground has some additional semi-interesting match-ups using the Metamoris style lure of MMA-centric grapplers going up against Jiu-Jitsu specialists (like Miyao vs Faber et cetera), and Combs vs Burns (though Burns has additional LEGIT BJJ credentials as well).

I'll be a negative Nancy and say that I don't think the Faber/Miyao match will be very interesting. Danis vs Shields I think will be chock full of entertainment value given all the Danaher Death Squad beef and Shields training there in NYC.

We have a wild set of matches coming our way in a few weeks, and presented by Chael Sonnen no less.

As per Flograppling, in addition to Dilon Danis vs Jake Shields, the card features:"
  • ​Paulo Miyao vs. Urijah Faber
  • Michael Perez vs. Nathan Orchard
  • John Combs vs. Gilbert Burns"
