PREMIER is and always has been built off of competition. No rivalry better exemplifies that than the struggle for supremacy between Timothy Thatcher (3-2-1) and “The Soul Fighter” Joe Graves (2-0-1). At PREMIER X, two of the most talked about PREMIER Athletes are once again set to lock horns.
Dating all the way back to November of 2014, Timothy Thatcher and Joe Graves have brought out a pair of the most intense matches ever in PREMIER. At PREMIER VII: Kratos vs Dutra, these two men pushed each other to the limit only to discover how evenly matched they were. Despite a 15-minute time limit draw result, their match would go on to earn the 2014 Match of the Year recognition.
Realizing the need for this match to gain the closure it deserved, PREMIER President and Match Maker John LaRocca would book a rematch for PREMIER VIII: Kratos vs Lewis earlier this year. As an added bonus, the bout would see an extended 30-minute time limit in an effort to crown a victor. As it would turn out, the extra time was all that Joe Graves needed to lock in a Rear Naked Chokehold on Thatcher.
After popular demand, a third match has been announced between the two grapplers. Timothy Thatcher will be on the hunt for the equalizer in what is slowly becoming the most heated feud in PREMIER history.
On Saturday, September 19th at Del Mar High School in San Jose, CA, Timothy Thatcher and Joe Graves will once again see who is the greater grappler. Will Thatcher’s hunger for the win give him the push he needs to succeed or will Graves continue to reign supreme in this duel? The only way to find out is the be there live!
