The busiest promotion in professional jiu-jitsu returns this weekend for its 153rd show. We are talking about Fight 2 Win, who, on Friday (September 25, 2020), will be headlining a fantastic card, featuring 18 black belt matches which will include 4 very fun female clashes and top-level entertainment in its bantamweight title match between Junny Ocasio and Marcelo Cohen. Check the full card below.


1135 S Lamar St
Dallas, TX



Main Event 155lbs Black Belt Gi
Gianni Grippo (Marcelo Garcia) vs Samuel Nagai (Checkmat)

Interesting match between veteran featherweight Gianni Grippo and black belt newcomer Samuel Nagai.

This will be Grippo’s first match since the COVID19 period, and he will be facing one of the hottest new prospects in the sport in Nagai. Samuel is a natural lightweight who is “ring-rust” free as he has been competing regularly over the past couple of months.

Expect a slight favoritism to the Brazilian grappler here, particularly considering this will be in the sub-only, F2W ruleset. Grippo is a masterful strategist and has years of experience over Nagai, so, if anyone can pull it off against the young stud, that person is him. Fun match ahead.

Co-Main Event Bantamweight Black Belt NOGI Title
Junny Ocasio (Unity) vs Marcelo Cohen (Armory / MCBJJ)

Two athletes who love to be on the offense, and two athletes who thrive in a submission only setting. Slight favoritism to Ocasio, who is training, day-in, and day-out, with an array of top tier athletes at Unity in New York, but do not count the veteran Marcelo out. If he catches one of his kimuras, he will take an arm home to Florida.

Flyweight Black Belt NOGI Title
Talita Alencar (Alliance) vs Heather Raftery (Atos)

Two flyweight studs, both Alencar and Raftery have been doing this for a minute, but still have pristine brake pads in them as they rarely use them. Forward movement and aggression are what these two No-Gi World medalists have given us over the years, expect more of the same here.

125lbs Black Belt GI
Amanda “Tubby” Alequin (Gamblers) vs Pati Fontes (Checkmat)

An incredible challenge for Fontes who will be facing in Alequin one of the most underrated grapplers in our sport. Formerly a middleweight, Alequin has been dropping in weight more recently. She is a submission machine and a very entertaining athlete to watch, particularly in this ruleset. Expect Amanda to be the favorite against the 3x world no-gi champ.

135lbs Black Belt NOGI
– Sheliah Lindsey (Magness BJJ) vs Gabi McComb (Gracie Humaita)

A former F2W belt holder, Lindsey will have her hands full with the “Tazmanian Devil” style that McComb brings to the table. Expect this to be a fun, fast-paced match as neither of these two athletes likes to step back.
