Fight 2 Win events are basically a weekend staple, and over the past few weeks, the west coast has been treated to multiple exciting superfight events from the promotion. This week, F2W is back for their 125th event, this time in San Jose, CA.
This weekend, F2W’s action-packed card will build up to a 210lb main event in the gi between Gutemberg Pereira and Rudson Mateus. This will be Pereira’s fifth F2W event as a black belt, and he’s once again being given an opponent worthy of his reputation as an athlete. He’s a former F2W champion, but his last match, a hard-fought battle against Kaynan Duarte, ended in a loss, so he’ll be hungry to add another win to his record on the big stage.
Mateus will be making his F2W debut at this event, and jiu-jitsu fans will be eager to see how he does against the formidable Pereira. Mateus has won Euros both this year and last year, and he impressed the entire jiu-jitsu world when he won gold at the UAEJJF Abu Dhabi World Pro earlier this year. He knows how to make a statement with his performance on the mats, and he’ll be looking to do so in San Jose.
The co-main event will see established elite BJJ athlete Osvaldo “Queixinho” facing off against newer, but promising talent Richar Nogueira. Queixinho, a four-time No-Gi World Champion, has proven his abilities multiple times on the F2W stage, and Nogueira (who won the Denver Open this year) will be eager to prove himself against a competitor of Queixinho’s caliber.
With plenty of other exciting competitors on the F2W 125 roster, this is an event you can’t miss whether you’re in San Jose or across the country. Check out the preview for the event below and make sure you’re watching when F2W 125 streams live on FloGrappling!
