KASAI Pro 2 debuted tonight on FloGrappling. 16 year old Nicky Ryan defeated Geo Martinez by judges decision.
The match was a dynamic battle of guard passing attempts and leg entanglements. Geo Martinez rolled for a kimora several times, but could never secure it. Nicky Ryan attempted a toe hold and finished the match with a threatening triangle and arm entanglement.
In his post fight interview, Nicky Ryan credited the judges’ decision to his attempt in the final seconds. He also explained his game plan saying, “Our game plan was to attack the lower body to expose upper body submissions. The whole match I was attacking his legs. Towards the end I transferred to triangle, and it worked. And that probably is what won me the decision.”
