Felipe Pena pulled what many considered a stunning upset when he submitted Gordon Ryan at the main event at Studio 540.
The match was packed with fast-paced back-and-forth action, with both competitors changing between playing and passing guard. At almost forty minutes into the match, Ryan attempted a leg lock, which Pena countered by escaping and attempting a triangle. Pena managed to pass Ryan’s guard and hold him in side control for a while until Ryan managed to escape.
As the thirty-minute mark passed, Pena predominantly worked on passing Ryan’s open guard. Ryan attempted a guillotine, but Pena was able to escape, take Ryan’s back and put him in a body triangle. At forty minutes into the match, Pena submitted Ryan with a rear naked choke.
