John Danaher BJJ Escapes

Last week we referenced how the Fight 2 Win professional jiu-jitsu promotion had become one of the biggest events on the grappling calendar, with the busiest schedule in the sport’s pro-circuit. Doing right by this claim, F2W is returning this weekend (Saturday 7th) to showcase yet another big line-up in Seattle, Washington, USA.

As per usual the F2W match-makers have done a great job at mixing in local talent with the sport’s international stars. Originally set to headline a fantastic match-up between Edwin Najmi and Marcelo Mafra for their 124th event, the o promotion had to retract their intent as Mafra injured himself in preparation. Fortunately for the fans, there was no shortage of talent available, as the always exciting Josh Hinger will be facing 2017’s World NoGi cham, Arnaldo Maidana.

BLACK BELT SUPERFIGHTS

ARNALDO MAIDANA (Checkmat) vs JOSH HINGER (Atos)
195lbs NOGi

Although the smaller man on the mat, Hinger is likely coming into this one as the favorite, though rest assured, Maidana is not a walk in the park. Arnaldo has looked very competitive this year, particularly with the gi, and has a world of experience.

Both athletes have met in the past, with one win each. Hinger plays best when fighting for takedowns and hunting heads, while Maidana tens to work best from his back, using his very lanky frame to create openings for his leg entries and triangles. This should be a great test for Hinger ahead of the ADCC later this month.

BRIAN JOHNSON (NWJJA) vs AARON MORRIS (RMNU)
Co-Main Event – Masters + Feather Weight Title

Two long-time competitors in the Washington region, both well decorated and with an offense based style of grappling. Good pairing.

KAREN ANTUNES (Checkmat) vs MAYSSA BASTOS (Unity)
120lbs GI

Another big match-up on the 124 F2W schedule is the one between these two outstanding grapplers, who among the most accomplished competitors in modern-day jiu-jitsu. Karen will be substantially bigger than Mayssa, having also the experience factor on her side. On the other side of the coin, Bastos is younger and does bring a more gi oriented game to the plate, with tons of berimbolo / lapel guard flair to the match.

A very tough call here if we were to bet on a favorite. Bastos is absolutely incredible, arguably the most promising rooster-weight in the world, but Karen has aggression and raw power on her side – two elements that might give her an edge tomorrow. Either way, this is has a ton of potential for “fight of the night”.
