SEPTEMBER 26, 2020, Last night Fight 2 Win ended its stay in Texas, where the professional jiu-jitsu promotion camped for the past 3 months, with a fun event featuring a handful of title matches and an interesting main-event headlining the newly promoted black belt phenom, Mr. Samuel Nagai, and veteran Marcelo Garcia black belt, Gianni Grippo.

34 Recorded Adult BJJ Matches – 10 submissions (29.5% sub rate)
19 Gi Matches – 7 submissions (37% sub rate)
15 No-Gi Matches – 3 submissions (20% sub rate)


A fun event, albeit, mostly spent with Nagai glued on to Grippo’s foot attempting his trademark botinha foot-lock. Samuel’s submission attempts did look tight, though Grippo remained calm, he who, in his 6-year long career at black belt, has ever been close to tapping to a lower-limb submission.

Grippo fought well but was unable to release himself from Nagai’s foot control throughout the match. Unnable to show his offense as much as he would have liked, Gianni ended up on the losing end of the referees’ decision.


Two title matches in the adult black belt division caught the attention of jiu-jitsu fans, both being in no-gi. The first match was that of Talita Alencar vs Heather Raftery. Both athletes put on a real show for the fans, with tons of movement and offensive maneuvers. Although with fairly even exchanges, Talita’s aggressiveness and speed posed a lot of issues to Heather. Solid win for Alencar.

The second adult black belt title match of F2W 153 saw Junny Ocasio’s dominant won over Marcelo Cohen. Cohen showed up ready to exchange footlock attempts with the Unity black belt, yet, Ocasio flipped the script midway through the match, opting to go for top position and pass Marcelo’s guard. Chaining his offense very well, Junny eventually got an excellent “bite” on Cohen’s heel for the tap.


Although with plenty of great matches to chose from, we would pick Shannon O’shea’s victory over Minah Turner as the head-turner here. These two competitors had an excellent battle, exchanging submission attempts, and positional control throughout the match at a very fast pace. We had the match going Turner’s way as her submission attempts looked closer to the tap, yet, the judges did not see it that way. Excellent performance by both.

Another outstanding performance seen last night was the 135lbs no-gi bout between Gabi McComb and Sheliah Lindsey. Sheliah was making her debut at black belt, and what a debut it was! Straight into the lion’s den, Lindsey went up against one of the toughest female grapplers on the planet in Gabi. The Magness BJJ standout put on a real challenge to Gabi in a very close match that could have easily gone her way. The Gracie Humaitá representative, on the other hand, was equally fun to watch, aggressive as always.
