The 6th Edition of the Polaris Jiu Jitsu Invitational is all set to go and once again the United Kingdom based promotion used one of their strongest assets – that of supreme matchmaking to produce another exciting grappling card.

At Polaris 6, jiu jitsu phenomenon Craig Jones, who shocked the world at the recent ADCC by submitting both Leandro Lo and Murilo Santana, will be taking on Polaris veteran and former UFC superstar Jake Shields in a match for the inaugural Polaris Middleweight Belt.

A very interesting clash between two nogi specialists that is also provides a major style vs style match-up.

Veteran MMA fighter and ADCC medalist Jake Shields’ formidable grinding style will meet that of Australian guard playing wizard Craig Jones. On paper Jake has the upperhand, a tried and tested “American Jiu Jitsu” of solid wrestling and fundamentals BJJ where top position is key which helped the American conquer world titles at ROTR, Strikeforce, Elite XC and Shooto.

On the other side of the mats the young Australian Craig Jones will bring a flexible guard with great movement and outstanding instinct for leg entanglements, something he is well known for since his performance at the 2018 ADCC in Finland. Aside from his unique leg entries, Jones has also a very dangerous triangle – all things Shields has seen plenty of training at the Renzo Gracie Academy. Will he be able to hold Jones and surpass the Aussie man’s creativity? We will soon find out.
