Medusa 2 Results – Aislin O’Connell Earns Bantamweight Title, Sophia Cassella Earns Strawweight

Saturday night treated fans to some high level grappling with a bit of combat jiu-jitsu mixed in.

Faitma Kline almost became Medusa’s 1st Double Champ, as she made it to the Combat Jiu-Jitsu 135 lb. Final Round against Aislin O’Connell. The two battled it out into OT, with referee Master Vic biting his knuckles through most of the match. In the 2nd OT round, O’Connell got the RNC tap on Kline in just :20 seconds. With Kline tasked to get a submission in a quicker time, she had her work cut out as she had yet to submit O’Connell in nearly 15-minutes of grappling. Kline chose to start on the arm and quickly jumped onto a deep armbar that seemed as if it were going to get the tap. Somehow, O’Connell survived and slipped out just seconds before the :20 mark, earning her win. She won all 3 of her matches on the night by RNC.

Earlier in the night, Sophia Cassella, a Tom Deblass product, earned the strawweight title under EBI rules in a final match against Kiaya Jackson, winning by straight ankle lock in less than 30 seconds.

Cassella made her way to the final round after an inside heel hook finish over Andrea Vasquez in the semifinals
