Check the main card analysis and the undercard line-up below.


Stream: Flograppling

Starts: 5 pm (Dallas, TX time)

Main Event: 205lbs Black Belt
– Gabriel Almeida vs Keenan Cornelius

A fantastic matchup between the dynamic Almeida versus lapel wizard Cornelius. Keenan will be the bigger man here, with the torque and experience advantage and Almeida will be bringing speed and aggression to the match.

On paper, the favoritism will go to the American Jiu-Jitsu representative. Cornelius has the biggest resume, is more experienced, and competes two weight classes above Gabriel, nevertheless, there is a path to victory for Almeida if he manages to stay away from the lapel/pressure passing games of Keenan. The Checkmat athlete’s path to the upset will likely be by using his movement-based grappling style and dangerous footlock attacks.

Co-Main Event: Black Belt Featherweight Gi Title
– Luiza Monteiro vs Jena Bishop

In a rematch of F2W 117, 1 year ago, a motivated Monteiro is returning to Seth Daniels stage and to her roots, the gi, after her devastating nogi loss to Elisabeth Clay last month. Luiza is a very worthy challenger to Bishop’s featherweight title, being a natural middleweight herself, with two IBJJF world titles to her credit and one of the craftiest guards in the business.

Although smaller than Monteiro, Jena Bishop has been preparing hard for this match and is very well acquainted with the F2W ruleset, having won their previous match back in July 2019 in a very tough decision victory. Evenly matched in all areas of the game, there are no easy predictions here.

Black Belt Bantamweight No-Gi Title
– Lucas Pinheiro vs Junny Ocasio

An outstanding match-up between two extremely talented grapplers. Pinheiro has the upper hand here in terms of resume and raw talent, though as “they” say, hard work beats talent and very few are as hard-working as Ocasio.

From the top Lucas is one of the very best guard passers in the division and one of the very few who can say they have passed Mikey Musumeci’s guard in competition. He also has a nasty katagatame choke and thrives in scrambles.

Junny is well versed in the leg-locking department, being a training partner of Eddie Cummings and a very accomplished athlete using that particular game, one that will certainly be part of his gameplan on Friday.

Fun match ahead.
