This Friday, September 10, 2020, Fight 2 Win will return with another entertaining grappling show in Dallas, Texas, the current capital of jiu-jitsu.

Gathering plenty of international talent, the 151st edition of F2W will headline three matches that could easily headline any major grappling event. Those are the main event, “Little Cobra” – Kennedy Maciel versus Osvaldo “Queixinho”, Gabriel Arges versus Márcio André, and Rafael Lovato Junior versus Aaron “Tex” Johnson. All three being supported by a very sturdy undercard.

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


September 11

Dallas, Texas, USA


Main Event: Black Belt Light Weight GI Title
Kennedy Maciel (Cobrinha) vs Osvaldo “Queixinho” Moizinho (Ares)

A superb match-up between two of the best in the game. Maciel has been inactive since the start of the pandemic, having only competed once this year, at the IBJJF Fresno Open. Kennedy will be matched up against Moizinho, who has been fairly active in the Fight 2 Win circuit, holding a record of 3-2 in 2020.

All of Osvaldo’s matches this year have been very entertaining, with his two losses being conceded while competing in a weight class above his natural division. In Kennedy, Queixinho will have a chance to compete against an athlete of equal built, and just as dangerous as his past competition.

Co-Main Event: Black Belt Light Heavyweight Masters GI Title
Rafael Lovato Jr (Lovato JJ) vs Tex Johnson (Fight Sports)

On record, Lovato is vastly more accomplished than Tex, but never count Johnson out, he is as unpredictable as he is dangerous.

Tex’s trump card will be his footlock prowess, an area of the game with which Rafael has struggled in the past. Lovato Junior is a more complete athlete, with solid stand-up, guard passing and bottom game, but we cannot stress how dangerous Aaron is with his straight ankle-lock, heel-hook game. Expect fireworks here, whoever wins, should win by submission.

185lbs Black belt Gi
Gabriel Arges (Gracie Barra) vs Márcio André (Marcio Andre JJ)

Once a featherweight, Márcio André seems to have fully embraced the medium-heavyweight division. This will be Márcio’s 2nd straight match in this division, this time going up against one of the most technical middleweights of all-time in Gabe Arges.

Arges’ bottom game is one of the most exciting in our sport, yet, as proven by Márcio in his last match against a heavy favorite (Ronaldo Junior), you can never count the veteran out. We expect Gabe to be well aware of how tricky André is, and for him to push the pace.

135lbs Black belt Gi
Lucas Pinheiro (ATOS) vs Vinny Saenz (Lovato JJ)

Another interesting match-up between two bantamweights that like to push the pace. Given his resume, Pinheiro will be the heavy favorite here, yet Saenz does bring an aggressive game to the table, one that has been prosperous under the F2W ruleset.
