Grapplefest 6 Results and Photos

Though it’s been just over a year since their first event, Grapplefest has swiftly found a home for themselves among the top submission only grappling showcases. With a rule set that encourages aggressive submission hunting, there’s no wonder Grapplefest has already secured some of the world’s most well-known competitors among their participants. The likes of Craig Jones, Lachlan Giles, Ffion Davies, and Gianni Grippo are just a few of Grapplefest’s notable past athletes.

Their 6th installment drew even more first-rate competitors from across the world to Liverpool, for an evening of exciting submissions. The Miyao brothers, Frank Rosenthal, Kamil Wilk, Ben Eddy, & Masakazu Imanari headlined the event, with some of the UK’s best up and coming talent starting the show. High-level submissions and gritty decision matches defined the night, with Paul Lukowski’s split decision win over Lee Simpson earning a well-deserved fight of the night.
