MAY 15, 2020 witnessed the return of professional jiu-jitsu by the hands of Fight 2 Win, in Dallas Texas.

The event ran smoothly and without any known incidents, with all athletes showing a clear eagerness to perform. In a mix of gi and no-gi matches, outside the two main events, we would like to make a special reference to Fight Sport’s Paulo Azambula’s fantastic performance over Cameron Couch, as well as Dillon Hinojosa. Both very entertaining athletes to follow.

For the main and co-main event, as we had alluded to in our preview, the Johnny Tama x Ethan Crelinsten had all the ingredients for a terrific display of grappling, and we were not wrong. In our eyes, this was the fight of the night. The Canadian Crelinsten looked unease with Tama’s well known Reverse X-Guard game, one that Johnny used to constantly attack Crelinsten’s feet. Ethan posed a few threats of his own, with feet entanglements, particularly from 50-50 and a dangerous back attack combination near the end. Unfortunately for the TriStar/DDS team member, not enough to sway the judges. Solid match and solid win from Tama.

Cyborg vs Trator was a typical ultra-heavyweight match, with Roberto working from the top position and Vinicius playing a very efficient guard game. In the end, a victory for the Fight Sports leader, likely for positional dominance.
