Miha Perhavec has the best submission rate in Polaris, winning his three appearances via submission. He looks to make a name for himself – on the main card for the first time – against Richie “Boogeyman” Martinez.
The Slovenian, however, will have his work cut out for him as Martinez is one of the best black belts Eddie Bravo has produced, with a solid competition record and a very exciting style.

Martinez vs. Perhavec
Richie ‘Boogyman’ Martinez will be taking on Miha Perhavec in the middleweight division. One of the stars of 10th Planet and one of the most recognisable faces in the sport, Richie has a dangerous guard and is a master of the D’Arce. Miha is the favourite going into this, having finished every one of his opponents at Polaris with a savage leg lock. The Slovenian has travelled the world looking for training partners and gyms – twice – including visiting the blue basement, so expect the leg attacks to be as sharp as ever. This will be an exciting match which I doubt will go the distance.
Miha Perhavec :
Dear friends, as you may know, Polaris is flying me to the UK this weekend, to compete in a hand-to-hand combat duel*. This time against an opponent that deserved himself the nickname ‘Boogeyman’. I have to say I really enjoyed the training leading up to this. I also enjoy having a singular, simple mission. 4-0,100% submission rate.
