Pro grappling promotion Metamoris put on its seventh show this evening in Hollywood, CA.

Metamoris utilizes a "no points" system, where only a submission can win the match. Bouts last for a single round of 20 minutes (25 minutes for championship matches).

The event was headlined by a grudge match of sorts between jiu-jitsu black belts Ralek Gracie and Garry Tonon. Also on the card was Olympic judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii, Bellator fighter Vladimir Matyushenko, and UFC fighter Kevin Casey (who revealed he would be competing on the August 27 Fight Night card in Canada).

Perhaps most interestingly, Jeff Glover pulled double duty that night, color commentating (with a beer in hand no less) despite also competing in the event.
