Right after it was revealed that Kaynan Duarte would face off against Nicky Rodriguez in the main event of F2W 129, the promotion’s CEO, Seth Daniels, has made another huge announcement for a match that you won’t want to miss.
At F2W 128, fans will be treated to a main event match between Gordon Ryan and Mahamed Aly, which will be a title bout for the super heavyweight no-gi championship.
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen Ryan on the F2W stage. His last appearance was back in 2017, where he submitted Eliot Kelly. He’d previously defeated Lucas Barbosa just a few weeks earlier. After having multiple months off competing this year, Ryan is hitting the ground running, popping up in the cards of seemingly every promotion possible, and this F2W match is the latest of his endeavors to conquer the BJJ competition scene.
Mahamed Aly’s F2W hiatus has been much shorter, and his debut for the promotion ended with him choking Max Gimenis at F2W 102. The 2018 World Champion has built an impressive resume for himself on the mats over the years, and a win against Ryan at F2W would be another huge accomplishment for him to add to his list.
