Nicky Ryan Wins Superfight At Gracie Worlds Against 10th Planet Prodigy Derek Rayfield

From John Danaher’s Facebook page:

“Nicky Ryan – Locked out! Nicky Ryan – just 15 years old – went to Gracie Worlds to compete in men’s adult black belt division. Apparently Mr Eddie Bravo offered a chance to fight under EBI rules against the older 10th Planet prodigy Derek in an impromptu superfight. Mr Ryan immediately accepted. He attacked with a mix of submissions and position before settling on a heel hook variation that won a submission victory in short order. This young man has trained so hard – it is wonderful to see him rewarded with victory today.”

  1. Derek is 15 he’s not older than Nicky. Also it was a 8 minute with good back and forth match where at one point Derek had him a deep dead orchard, Not a “submission of short order” it’s best to fix these inaccuracies.
