Former UFC Welterweight competitor. Dan Hardy and UFC referee Marc Goddard are listed as event judges.[1]

Polaris have received positive feedback in the Jiu-Jitsu press for the high quality of their events and the talent they have been able to attract to compete.[2] They have also been praised for their treatment of the athletes competing as well as the diversity of styles and match ups they have been able to put together.[3] This culminated in Polaris winning the title of "Promotion of the year" at the Jitsmagazine BJJ Awards 2020, beating out stiff competition.[4]
