Fight 2 Win 154 is bringing a big main event to Philadelphia on October 17th, as Jon “Thor” Blank takes on Manuel Ribamar. Blank is an ADCC veteran and 10th Planet standout who is no doubt looking to get in as much practice as possible before the next edition of the ADCC trials comes around. Ribamar meanwhile, is a regular feature on the F2W stage and was undefeated in his first six fights for the promotion. His seventh and most recent appearance came when he was brought in as a late-replacement for Keenan Cornelius, this resulted in him coming up just short against Gabriel Almeida at F2W 149.
Prior to the main event, Fight 2 Win 154 will also feature a number of other high-profile matchups. Edwin “Junny” Ocasio is returning only a fortnight after his last Bantamweight title defense and this time he will be putting his title on the line against Jose Carlos Lima. Lima has medalled on some big stages in the past, but Ocasio holds a perfect 3-0 record at F2W and the Unity black belt is known as a lethal leglocker who’s relentless in attack. The card also features Nathiely De Jesus, who will be defending one of the three F2W titles that she’s earned over the last few years against three-time World Champion, Maria Malyjasiak.
