F2W 179: Kennedy Maciel & Joshua Cisneros Face Off In Highly Anticipated Rematch Tonight

Fight 2 Win returns tonight for F2W 179, and fans who have their eyes on the stage will get to see Kennedy Maciel and Joshua Cisneros run it back after one of the most intense F2W matches we’ve seen so far this year.

To refresh your memory, the last time Maciel and Cisneros faced off on the stage was in April, exactly ten events ago at F2W 169. The match was intense from start to finish, with Cisneros looking dominant for the vast majority of it. But in the last thirty seconds, Maciel worked his way to his opponent’s back, locking in a rear naked choke and getting the tap with just ten seconds left. The win meant that he kept his lightweight title, but tonight, Cisneros will get the chance to avenge his loss.

While the F2W match was the most recent competitive showing for Maciel, Cisneros has since gone on to claim silver at both the Houston Open and No-Gi Pans. It would’ve been a mistake to underestimate him in his last match against Maciel, and the same is true for their rematch.

The co-main event will also be sure to bring the action as Karen Antunes and Gabi McComb face off against each other. Both competitors are F2W veterans and decorated athletes, with Antunesbeing a world champion in both gi and no-gi, in addition to holding a title from Pans in 2018. McComb has two titles from Pans in the gi and two in no-gi as well, most recently taking featherweight gold at No-Gi Pans earlier this year.

A few other big-name athletes, such as Gabriel AlmeidaTracey Goodell, Heather Raftery, and Jaime Canuto, will also be taking their place on the stage earlier in the evening.
