Subversiv Brings Viking-Style Team Grappling to FITE

"Pillage, Plunder, Reign": It's a new future for grappling with the biggest team event ever for the sport; Subversiv 7 presents 8 teams in a 3x3 tournament going after a $30,000 grand prize; Catch all the action streaming LIVE on FITE June 11th from Los Angeles!

Miami, Florida (April 20, 2022)--Subversiv will present Subversiv 7: The Battle of the Brands live on FITE June 11th from L.A.'s Commerce Casino. The Viking-style team grappling promotion is the largest of its kind, attracting the world's top talent. The promotion is brought to you by the mad minds that gave you ADCC and prides itself on being pro-military, pro-cannabis, and anti-PC.

The host is Will Pounder, #1 adult male film star in the world and also a jiu jitsu expert. Legendary combat sports commentator Robyn Black will serve as analyst. On commentary will be Hector Lombard – a world champion in both MMA and Bareknuckle fighting – and Brandon McGarahan, the founder of PGF fighting league and an EBI commentator. The evening's special guest is legendary pro wrestler Rob Van Dam.

Subversiv combines a variety of BJJ rule innovations, including limited time on the ground if there's no immediate submission, with mixed weight classes and one woman on each team. It all adds up to unique and fast paced bouts that BJJ World has called, "A real hit and the most entertaining and efficient rulesets format available today."

Team Checkmat is the first to announce participation with first place SJJIF World Championship winner Gabriel Almeida in the 185lbs+ spot, 20-year-old phenom Jansen Gomes in the under 185lbs division and Tata Ribeiro in the open female division, widely known as one of the best women in the sport. Team Checkmat comes out of nearby Long Beach, CA.


"Subversiv is one of the most exciting BJJ promotions and fans are seriously pumped up for this long awaited return to L.A.," said Michael Weber, COO of FITE. "They don't call it Viking-style for nothing – the action is intense."

More official team announcements are coming soon.
