The Grappling Network (TGN) is coming to FITE with regular events and documentaries around all non-striking fight sports including submission wrestling and BJJ. To celebrate the partnership, TGN and FITE will host the event Submission Only Series (SOS) also known as Save Our Summer, live from the Academy LA on Saturday, July 31st.
