Zahabi presented his case in a video Polaris released, in connection with the grappling promotion’s ninth event. The renowned coach also talked about rising grappler, and Tristar’s own, Ethan Crelinsten.

Polaris 10, meanwhile, will take place on May 25th in Dorset, England. In the main event, 17-year-old grappling sensation, Nicky Ryan, will face MMA legend, Urijah Faber.

The UFC’s lightweight champ, Nurmagomedov, is expected to face new interim champ Dustin Poirier later this year.
