Get Ready for F2W 128 in Philly

The biggest party in grappling returns to the City of Brotherly Love with F2W 128 on Saturday October 19th and it looks set to be another unmissable event.

Philadelphia, a city known for its great fighters, is hosting the latest Fight 2 Win event, F2W 128 this coming Saturday. With a couple of title fights on the card and some exciting up and comers, it will offer fight fans a night of non-stop action. The card is dominated by No Gi contests that will showcase some of the best fighters in the business.

The main event sees Kayan Duarte of Atos vs Nick Rodriguez of Renzo Gracie in a 230lb No Gi fight that will top an evening of exciting bouts. The co-main event is a battle for the black belt featherweight No Gi title between Lucas Pinheiro from Atos and Joao Miyao representing Unity.

The 170 lb masters black belt No Gi title pits Mike Padilla of Padilla BJJ against Enrico Cocco of Fight Sports, a fight that is followed up by a 180 lb black belt No Gi contest between Isaque Bahiense  from Alliance and Felipe Cesar Silva of Unity.

Watch out for an unmissable No Gi  fight between Will Dill of Tac Team and Daniel Maira of Alliance at 160 lb. Daniel is a true up and comer, with several IBJJF golds already in his possession. He recently won Deep Roots Invitational and got gold at the No Gi Pan Ams and at the Las Vegas Open. While Daniel competes in both Gi and No Gi, he is a specialist in No Gi grappling.

The Gi event of the evening will undoubtably be the 180 black belt bout pitting Stephen Plyler of Balance against Thiago Thomaz of SAS. Stephen is known for being a tough fighter in the GI, so it will definitely be one to watch.
