NOVEMBER 07, 2020, The Fight 2 Win show hit Philadelphia once again with a stacked card featuring some of the sport’s most fun competitors, new blood that included Checkmat’s Nagai Brothers, Cobrinha’s Kennedy Maciel, as well as Unity’s Junny Ocasio and Jeferson Guaresi. Adding to these incredible members of jiu-jitsu’s new generation elite, there was also world medalist Márcio André and an array of talented lower belts.

Overall, this was a very fun event with a solid submission ratio of nearly 50% and tons of innovative maneuvers, of which we would like to mention Daniel Sala’s creative lapel choke. One that mixed the old school cross choke motion from turtle position with the powerful cachecol choke. A very fun and creative submission pulled off by the brown belt.

30 Recorded Adult BJJ Matches – 14 submissions (47% sub rate)
11 Gi Matches – 5 submissions (45% sub rate)
19 No-Gi Matches – 9 submissions (47% sub rate)

For the main event, F2W had New York’s Junny Ocasio, the bantamweight reigning champ against one of the rising stars of the sport. ADCC veteran, Kennedy Maciel who battled for the featherweight strap. The match went fully in Maciel’s favor as Ocasio struggled to keep a hold of the fast-paced Brazilian.

One of Junny’s secret weapons as a bantamweight champion has been his ability to stifle movement and lock on to positions where he can methodically apply his submissions. Knowing this, Kennedy made the most of his speed and athleticism to keep away from danger and find his way into an armbar from a fantastic chain of transitions. A match well-worth rewatching.

The upset of the night came from newcomer Sam Nagai. The young Brazilian has been on a tear since he conquered his black belt a couple of months ago, with this being third world medalist he defeats on the mats. A fantastic future is in sight for Nagai. For full match results, check inside.
