JUNE 20, 2020, TEXAS – USA was once again the set for another edition of the Fight 2 Win promotion, the 144th card set forth by this important grappling organization.

On paper, this looked like a very exciting line up as it featured many high-level athletes who traditionally like to push the pace on the mats. Luckily those suspicions turned out to be very true as the 32 matches were almost entirely entertaining.

One of the tales of the event was most certainly the dominance of the Pedigo Submission Fighting Academy. Based in Illinois, the team brought 7 athletes down to Texas, for the event – Andrew Wiltse, Clay Mayfield, Troy Mercer, Alejandro Wajner, Jacob Couch, Sathya Wiltse and Jorge Valladares, all of which conquered the “W” in very entertaining fashion, with 3 of those wins coming via submission. Also successful were team Checkmat and Atos, who came out with strong wins and two important F2W titles.

For more details on last night’s events, please check below.


  • Total Matches 32 (17 submissions – 52%)
  • 18 Gi Matches (9 submissions – 50%)
  • 14 No-Gi Matches (8 submissions – 57%)


Main Event
205lbs Black Belt GI Title
Lucas Barbosa def. Rafael Lovato Jr. via armbar

When assessing this match, there seemed to be a clear advantage for whoever achieved and secured the top position. Given Lucas’ well-known takedown skills, Rafael opted to pull guard early, likely with the intent of sweeping Barbosa midway through the match and work his top game pressure from there. Unfortunately for the American grappling legend, that game-plan did not work out. Once he found himself on top, Lucas was relentless, passing Lovato’s guard on two occasions, always placing Rafael in check.

The relentless pace set forth by the Brazilian forced Rafael to almost exclusively play defense, and in one of these exchanges Lovato was forced to hyper-extend his frame and “offer” and arm to The Hulk, one gift was enough for the Atos representative. Fantastic performance by Barbosa.

Co-Main Event
130lbs Black Belt NOGI Title
– Nathalie Ribeiro def. Talita Alencar  via decision

As we had alluded to in our preview article, Nathalie vs Talita had all the tools to be the Match Of The Night, a comment that turned out to be true. Very fast-paced match, Ribeiro fighting from her back and attacking the feet of Alencar as well as the upper body – particularly in one nasty armbar attempt that looked very close to a match-ending sequence.

The resilient Alencar persevered and worked on forcing Nathalie to turtle, in the hope of taking the Checkmat athlete’s back. This eventually did happen, and Talita tried her best to lock on a submission, unfortunately for her, she could not bite on anything substantial. Nathalie’s closer submission attempts swayed the judges in her favor, a very close match.

175lbs Black Belt GI
– Jonnatas Gracie def. Edwin Najmi  via split decision

A tough match to judge, Gracie fell for a footlock halfway through the bout and the two athletes exchanged leg entanglements from then on. The decision could have gone either way. In his post-fight interview with FloGrappling’s Hywel Teague, Jonnatas explained the slower performance as being a result of the lack of competitive rhythm due to the recent COVID19 events.

200lbs Black Belt NOGI
– Andrew Wiltse def. Isiah Wright via RNC

A solid performance by Wiltse, who saw Isiah hunt for the submission first and dangerously. Andrew worked from his back, snatching a fantastic arm-drag from the bottom, solidifying top dominance. After a few passing attempts, Wiltse secured back control in a beautiful sequence, and from there the choke.
