Third Coast Grappling’s June event has been the talk of the jiu-jitsu community for a while now. The promotion has regularly been releasing updates for what is going to be a stacked event, and over the past week, they’ve added a few additional big-name matchups to the event.

The first of the new additions was Ethan Crelinsten vs. Vagner Rocha. Crelinsten, who will have a Polaris match against Ashley Williams in a welterweight title fight on May 25, is a Renzo Gracie standout and ADCC veteran. He’ll provide tough competition for Rocha, whose last two competitive endeavors have left him victorious at Polaris 8 and 9. A face-off between these two is sure to bring the fireworks.

The most recently revealed match will be between Edwin Najmi and Gianni Grippo. Last year, Grippo won No-Gi Worlds, Pans, and No-Gi Pans. Najmi is also a Pans champion and has medaled on many elite stages, including Worlds and the UAEJJF World Pro. In June, we can expect a highly technical battle between these two.
