Flow Sub Only Squad5 was a fantastic night of high-level grappling and the main event match was an absolute war between two great competitors. Both Andrew Tackett and Sean Yadimarco are capable of competing at a high level and a match between the two of them was always going to right the way down to the wire. In fact, this wasn’t even the first time that they’ve crossed paths on the mats and the last time was just as close. They battled it out on a Who’s Number One card in 2021, where neither man was able to get the finish and Tackett was declared the winner by referee decision.
This match was no different, other than the fact that the ruleset that they competed under was slightly different. Instead of being left in the hand of an independent judge, Flow Sub Only booked Tackett and Yadimarco to compete under EBI rules instead. That turned out to be a fantastic idea, as it only gave the fans more of a good thing. Not only did the two men generate non-stop action throughout the regulation time period but they also went through all three rounds of EBI overtime as well. Neither of them was able to finish and after almost 20 minutes, Tackett was declared the winner due to having the most ride-time in overtime.
