Mason "The Mangler" Fowler beat Gabriel Checco during the main card fight at Submission Underground (SUG) 27 to defend his title as Champion! This is Mason's 9th time defending his SUG Championship.
Fowler had been working through an injury for the past couple months and showed up ready to go on October 10th, 2021 in Portland, Oregon.
The match went into overtime after Checco escaped a rear naked choke and later arm bar of Fowler. Fowler ended up winning by way of a face crank in the top of the second OT round and later escaping Checco's back control to secure the win (courtesy of Grappling Insider).
