F2W 137 Results: Barbosa Defeats Jimenez, Record 76% Of Matches End In Submission

Fight 2 Win is a submission-only promotion, so it’s no surprise that many of their events have high overall submission rates. But tonight, the promotion beat their own record for largest submission percentage, capping everything off with a huge match between Roberto Jimenez and Lucas Barbosa.

Barbosa vs. Jimenez was one of the promotion’s most highly anticipated matches in recent memory, and the two athletes delivered. The battle was an action-packed struggle between two of the best competitors in the jiu-jitsu scene right now, and in the end, Barbosa came ahead with the win via armbar, becoming the first person to defeat Jimenez since the young prodigy earned his black belt. The match also won the Fight of the Night award.

Barbosa’s victory was the perfect finish to a night that was jam-packed with submissions, including a d’arce choke from Marcus Wilson and a choke from YJ Lee that earned each athlete Submission of the Night honors. Fan-favorite Nikki Sullivan also added another win to her record with a kneebar, and former Team No Sleep member and new Nova Mente academy owner Troy Everett came out ahead with a baseball bat choke.

At the end of the night, the event held a 76.2% submission rate — the highest in the promotion’s history.
