Metamoris 4: The Matches So Far

Well, that seems tremendously quick. I feel like we just finished 3, and already we’re getting ready for 4. An exaggeration of course, considering 3 happened on March 29th, and this even isn’t happening until August.

So, the matches they have released so far are:

Chael Sonnen vs Andre Galvao

Saulo Ribeiro (hooray!) vs Comprido Medeiros

Dean Lister vs Josh Barnett

Keenan Cornelius vs Vinny Magalhaes

Kit Dale vs Garry Tonon

There will also be a “secret match”: I’m not entirely sure what that means, but it should be interesting. Apparently competitors won’t know who they are fighting until right before. Does this mean the pool of competitors will have their names thrown into a bag and two will be drawn out? Will they blindfold two random well known fighters and lead them to the ring? I mean, this is the family that attempted to integrate a moat of alligators around a UFC ring in its early days, so really anything is possible.

There are some other sites talking about Metamoris 4’s lineup: mainly about the MMA/grappling only mix, but hey, it just may be the way to generate more interest in the grappling/submission side of MMA, instead of so much focus from the casual MMA fan on the striking element. Check them out when you have the time:
