OCTOBER 18, 2020, Three whole weeks have come and went since Fight 2 Win last had a show, the biggest break the promotion had since they restarted the event, post COVID19 enforced break, and we were very happy to see them back.

This was also a return to the American East Coast – Philadelphia – and they made the best of the available talent by putting on a very fun show with great talent from the Tri-State area, and others who came from afar to compete in the most active pro-grappling event on earth. As per usual, we give you the stats below and move on to the event’s match-results:

30 Recorded Adult BJJ Matches – 13 submissions (43% sub rate)
9 Gi Matches – 3 submissions (33% sub rate)
21 No-Gi Matches – 10 submissions (47% sub rate)


Black Belt Results

Middleweight NOGI Title Match
Jon Blank Def Manuel Ribamar via Inside Heel Hook

The underrated 10th Planet middleweight Jon “Thor” Blank added another submission win to his short but very impressive resume. Thor is not a full-time athlete and competes only when good opportunities arise, coming in with 15 matches as a black belt against Ribamar’s 150 (104-46 record).

In those 15 matches, Thor did beat some heavy artillery, namely Rustam Chsiev, Pedro Marinho, Adam Wardzinski, and Roberto Jimenez, to name a few, yet, he was certainly the underdog against the experienced “Riba”. With the odds against him, Jon managed to keep at bay from Manuel’s quick guard passing skills and found his way to the Brazilian’s legs from his trademarked sitting guard. From there, the tap quickly made itself present. Flawless performance by Blank.

Welterweight GI Title Match
Maria Malyjasiak Def Nathiely de Jesus via Knee Bar (FOTN)

Superb backward and forwards match with Nathiely taking a lot out of the Polish athlete from her guard. Resilient as she always is Malyjasiak pressed forward the entire time, and, eventually found her way into a quick and sharp leg entry from the top, getting a quick and painful tap from Nathiely.

Bantamweight NOGI Title Match
Junny Ocasio Def Jose Carlos Lima Inverted Triangle (SOTN)

Not the best match we’ve ever seen, by lack of Ocasio trying. Junny pressed forward the entire duration of the match while Lima played the distance game. Never truly engaging with the reigning champ, unable to find a safe path into the New Yorker’s guard.

In the only opportunity of the match, Ocasio snatched the submission. A savvy transition from armbar to inverted triangle for another victorious title defense against a very decorated opponent.
