AUGUST 15, 2020, Dallas, Texas was once again the home for Fight 2 Win, one of the very few companies in the USA who are still working hard to keep our sport alive amidst the current COVID19 world-wide situation.

As per usual, the show offered high-level entertainment, particularly in the final portion of the card, with top-notch grappling and a solid rate of submissions finishes as shown by the stats below:

37 Recorded Matches – 16 submissions (43% sub rate)
21 Gi Matches – 9 submissions (43% sub rate)
16 No-Gi Matches – 7 submissions (44% sub rate)

You will find the full results and our commentary on a few of the more important matches on the card here:


Main Event: 205lbs Black Belt Gi
Gabriel Almeida def. Manuel Ribamar via decision

Originally set to compete against Keenan Cornelius, Almeida ended up facing Manuel Ribamar, a man who had beaten him 3x in the past.  “Riba” himself came in with a 5-2 record in 2020, and highly confident with a recent title win over AOJ phenom Johnatha Alves. This positive period for the Manaus native had him leading as a favorite coming into the super-fight.

The match was very close, with Ribamar doing his best to slow down Gabriel with his lapel game, and Almeida using his scrappy and aggressive style to keep Manuel from gaining any type of momentum.

There weren’t any dangerous moments, submission wise, nor did any of the athletes conquer critical positions on each other, nevertheless, Gabriel appeared to be the one trying to keep the game loose and offensive, and Ribamar the one trying to tie up in 5050 and lapel guards. These dynamics swayed the judges in favor of the Checkmat athlete.

Co-Main Event: Black Belt Featherweight Gi Title
Luiza Monteiro def. Jena Bishop via slide choke from the back

A very dominant performance by Luiza who started out very well, conquering a few of her key positions from the get-go. Always tough to control Jena escaped a few of Monteiro’s traps early, but the Atos competitor was just too much for Bishop in this match and forced Jena to tap from a tight choke.

Black Belt Bantamweight No-Gi Title
Junny Ocasio def. Lucas Pinheiro via split decision

A great day for the underdog, Junny Ocasio as the new yorker beat one of the top jiu-jitsu athletes in the light-featherweight division and added his name to the elite of grappling.

This was not an easy match. Junny’s dangerous leg-lock game seemed to have an effect on Lucas’s game, who refused to engage Ocasio head-on from a passing stance. Lots of face pushing and distance passing attempts, though nothing that phased Murilo Santana’s black belt.

Ocasio tried to engage, chasing Pinheiro in the scooting position for a large portion of the match. This forward movement had an effect on the judges in the final decision.
