Elisabeth Clay‘s competitive black belt gi debut went her way tonight at F2W 165 when she dethroned reigning F2W welterweight gi champion Maria Malyjasiak, who claimed the title when she defeated Nathiely de Jesus with a kneebar at F2W 154.

Prior to the main event, Luiza Monteiro took on Jessica Flowers in a tough co-main event that showed why both competitors are some of the best grapplers in the world.

Co-Main Event

Luiza Monteiro vs. Jessica Flowers

Monteiro pulled guard and immediately transitioned from a lasso to an omoplata. Flowers defended and used a toehold to get her opponent to release her hold, forcing Monteiro to return to playing open and lasso guard. Monteiro again went for an omoplata, and Flowers initially tried to defend with another toehold. Then, though, Flowers was forced to roll over her shoulder, giving up the sweep to Monteiro and ending up in bottom side control before briefly putting her opponent in half-guard. After Monteiro returned to top side control, Flowers succeeded in rolling over to reverse the position, forcing Monteiro to go back to playing guard.

Monteiro initially worked spider-lasso guard before sweeping Flowers and working to secure one of her legs. Flowers locked on 50/50 and kept a grip on Monteiro’s pant leg, coming up to her feet while Monteiro then secured a 50/50 grip with her legs. Monteiro tipped Flowers back to a seated position and capitalized when Flowers moved her own leg to the outside of Monteiro. Monteiro seized the opportunity and Flowers’ foot, locking on a toehold and quickly getting the tap with just over a minute left in the match.

Luiza Monteiro was declared the winner by submission.

Main Event

Maria Malyjasiak vs. Elisabeth Clay

Clay kicked things off by pulling guard and inverting, and Malyjasiak grabbed a leg and sat back for a kneebar, but Clay came up to her feet and stayed out of danger. Malyjasiak locked up 50/50, tipping Clay over to a seated position and defending against Clay’s footlock attempts with a spider guard hold. Malyjasiak then came on top, and Clay worked her way underneath her opponent with an inversion and went for a toehold, then transitioned to a kneebar. From there, it was only moments before Malyjasiak tapped out with about seven minutes and sixteen seconds left in the match.

Elisabeth Clay was declared the winner by submission and claimed the F2W welterweight gi title.
