Fight 2 Win 148 saw another night of explosive action in Austin, Texas. With highlights that included a nail-biter of a match between Kendall Reusing and Brittney Elkin (that ultimately saw Reusing submit Elkin with under ten seconds to go), this is an event that won’t soon be forgotten.
In the co-main event of the evening, Keenan Cornelius made his F2W debut and took on Matheus Luna in the gi.
Luna started the match trying to pass Cornelius’ guard as Cornelius began working his infamous lapel game. Cornelius worked his way into an omoplata, then transitioned into a kneebar attempt. The competitors were reset after venturing too close to the edge of the match, and Cornelius was able to refine his kneebar attempt. However, Luna defended, and the two ended up in a 50/50 position, where they stayed for much of the remainder of the match. After finally managing to untangle themselves after a few attempts to come up from both athletes, Cornelius and Luna finished the match off by attempting foot locks against each other with about ten seconds to go. Neither was able to finish the submission, however, and Cornelius was declared the winner by unanimous decision.
In the main event, Max Gimenis took on Victor Hugo for the super heavyweight black belt gi title.
The match started with Hugo keeping Gimenis in closed guard. After a couple of quick passing attempts from Gimenis, Hugo opened up his guard, first working some lasso-like positions before wrapping up a leg and coming up in 50/50. Gimenis managed to reverse the position and came up in Hugo’s reverse closed guard. Hugo came up and attempted a kneebar, but Gimenis was able to rotate and protect himself from the submission. Not giving up, though, Hugo came up and snatched Gimenis’ back, locking on a choke/face crank and quickly getting the tap.
With the win, Hugo retained his F2W title.
