Fight 2 Win 170 saw an exciting night of matches, following up an unforgettable main event at last week’s F2W 169Max Gimenis and Guilherme Augusto went head-to-head in the co-main event of the evening, while the main event of the night featured a close battle from the guard that ended in Josh Hinger claiming the F2W master middleweight title from Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa.

Co-Main Event

Max Gimenis vs. Guilherme Augusto

After some grip-fighting on the feet, Gimenis pulled guard and then got a sweep by transitioning from x-guard to an omoplata. Augusto then worked guard himself, controlling the pant leg and trying for a sweep with Gimenis on top. Gimenis alternated between passing from the feet and staying low on the knees, finally managing to get to side control with about two minutes left in the match. Augusto got to his knees and then his feet as he tried to reverse the position and bring Gimenis to the ground. The two got too close to the edge and were reset in the middle on their feet. Augusto then pulled guard, but despite their best efforts, neither competitor was able to capitalize on the position.

Max Gimenis was declared the winner by unanimous decision.

Main Event

Josh Hinger vs. Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa

Barbosa started the action with a guard pull, and Hinger stayed low as he worked to pass. Though Barbosa did a good job of retaining his guard at first, Hinger managed to transition to mount eventually. Barbosa soon trapped one of Hinger’s feet, and Hinger kept the pressure down on Barbosa’s head and arm. Hinger briefly succeeded in getting his foot out, but Barbosa then trapped Hinger’s other foot. Hinger moved to the side, and Barbosa grabbed a lapel to try to control his opponent. As the clock wound down, Hinger again got his trapped foot free, and Barbosa countered by switching to trap Hinger’s opposite foot. Neither athlete was able to finish the fight before time ran out, and Hinger was declared the winner by unanimous decision, taking the F2W master middleweight title.
