Fight 2 Win 151 packed in the action and excitement we’ve come to expect from the promotion, and the co-main and main event saw two new champions crowned.

The co-main event of the evening saw Rafael Lovato Jr. face off against Aaron “Tex” Johnson.

Johnson immediately pulled guard and tried to isolate a leg for a footlock, and Lovato managed to stay on top. Still, Johnson refused to let go of the leg, and Lovato pressured forward, both competitors trying to maintain their position without tiring. With under two minutes left, the referee tried to reset the competitors, but F2W CEO Seth Daniels spoke up and asserted that they should remain in the position and encouraged Lovato and Johnson to pick up the pace. However, the athletes remained in a stalemate until the end of the match, and the judges awarded Johnson the unanimous decision, making him the new black belt master light heavyweight gi champion.

The night finished off with a black belt lightweight gi title match between Kennedy Maciel and Osvaldo “Queixinho” Moizinho. Maciel started the action by pulling guard, and the competitors entered a leg entanglement and fought for grips. Queixinho seemed like he might come up, but Maciel reversed the position and came on top. The athletes returned to the feet, and Queixinho sunk in a collar grip while Maciel trapped one of his opponent’s legs between his own. Maciel then slammed Queixinho down to the mat and worked to pass his guard. His efforts ultimately forced Queixinho to let go of his lasso and the athletes briefly returned to their feet before Maciel again pulled guard.

Maciel maintained a hold on Queixinho’s pants as the competitors again returned to the feet and then went back down to the mats, and Maciel tried to secure an ankle lock, with Queixinho holding onto a lapel. Queixinho tried to roll out of the hold, and Maciel went belly-down in the last few seconds of the match to try to finish with a submission, but was unable to get the tap. Still, the judges awarded Maciel the unanimous decision victory, and he became the new black belt lightweight gi champion.
