Fight 2 Win 151 delivered plenty of action to Texas with a changing of the guard-style matchup in the main event, between Kennedy Maciel and Osvaldo “Queixinho” Moizinho. The Co-Main event was another big matchup as leglock expert Aaron “Tex” Johnson took on the now-retired Bellator World Champion, Rafael Lovato Jr.
Johnson started out true to form by pulling guard early and working to isolate a leg. Lovato Jr was having none of it however and he worked his pressure-based top game perfectly to counteract his opponent’s attempts to secure a leg entanglement. The match was pretty much at a stalemate in this position with neither competitor managing to advance for the majority of the match. With only a few minutes left on the clock, the referee was about to stand the pair up before F2W CEO Seth Daniels interjected and advised that the match remain where it is, but encouraged the competitors to push the action. Sadly, both men were still unable to advance position and the match went to a decision, with Johnson being declared the victor.
In the main event, Maciel also pulled guard early on to enter a leg entanglement, with both competitors gripfighting furiously. Maciel worked hard to come up on top before the pair returned to a standing position. Queixinho reached for a collar grip but Maciel took advantage and took him down with some force, before working to pass his guard. While Queixinho was able to start working a Leg Lasso, he was forced to abandon this and return to standing to avoid being passed. Maciel pulled guard again but this time managed to get a good pants-grip and secure an ankle lock. As Queixinho tried to roll, Maciel went belly-down and wrenched on the submission in the dying seconds of the match, but was unable to get the tap and instead won by decision.
