Fight 2 Win 132 Recap
Fight 2 Win 132 is a submission only Jiu Jitsu tournament and one of the most anticipated Jiu Jitsu events of the year which took place on 11/23/2019 at the Hawaii Convention Center. One thing that separates F2W from other grappling competitions is there is no point system and the only way to win is by submission or aggression. F2W 132 was a spectacular event full of action as well as some upsets. Professors Jordan Gomez, Tracy Goodell, Cesar Casamajo, Christopher Kawaihae, Myron Kamihara, and Will Torres from CJJF were there to showcase their skills.
Professor Cesar Casamajo demoralized his opponent Adam Taufmann by applying relentless pressure and positional dominance. Adam tried to attack Cesars leg early in the match but was unsuccessful in his attempt and Cesar was able to capitalize on it. Adam spent most of the match defending and trying to escape from not so good positions. Cesar was awarded the victory by decision.
One of CJJF’s newest black belts Will Torres put it on the line by facing a much more experienced competitor Rhalan Gracie. Will got the match to the ground by pulling guard early in the match. Despite Rhalan’s relentless pressure, Will never lost his focus and stuck to his game plan. Rhalan struggled with Will’s guard for most of the match. Rhalan turned it up towards the end of the match but unfortunately for Rhalan it was too little too late. The match was close but Will was awarded the win by decision.
Professor Tracy Goodell was there to defend her F2W Womens Masters Bantam Weight belt against Jenna Bishop from Alliance. Tracy fought hard and was never in trouble at any time in the match but Jenna Bishop was relentless with her offense and ended up winning by decision to become the new F2W Womens Masters Bantam Weight Gi Champion.
In the co-main event, were Jordan Gomez and Jiu-Jitsu legend Baret Yoshida. Jordan didn’t waste any time in getting the match to the ground by pulling guard early in the match. It was a very entertaining back and forth match that had everyone on the edge of their seats. Both competitors put on a great performance and it was an epic display of Jiu-Jitsu that went the distance but Jordan managed to secure the victory by decision and become the new Masters Black Belt Feather Weight Champion.
The main event was an action packed fifteen minute battle between two N0Gi grappling masters, Garry Tonon and ADCC champion Davi Ramos. The match was fast paced and both competitors were very aggressive in their exchanges. The match had everything one could hope for in a grappling match. Garry Tonon was relentless with his attacks and Davi slowed down towards the end of the match. Garry was able to take Davi’s back and secure a RNC choke but didn’t have enough time to execute the submission. Despite running out of time, it was still enough for Gary to win by unanimous decision.
F2W has become the most consistent stage for athletes to get paid for competing in Jiu-Jitsu. We would like to congratulate and thank everyone who represented our team at F2W132.
