Fight To Win Pro held their 60th show this evening in Reno, Nevada.The main event featured F2W Pro’s Male Gi Black Belt of the year Marcos Torregrosa and Jerry Hallert.
The match opened with Torregrosa sitting to butterfly guard, initially hunting for a leg to attack, but instead changing his mind to come up for top position. He hit a textbook kneecut pass and then opted to cook Hallery in side control under heavy pressure.
After several minutes of control, Torregrosa isolated an arm and spun for the submission, but he had to settle for back mount instead. The clock expired with Torregrossa on the back; he took the victory by unanimous referee’s decision.

Written and directed by David Mamet, «Red Belt» came out in 2008 and tells the story of a jiu-jitsu academy owner struggling to make ends meet. A chance encounter brings hope to the protagonist, but betrayal and deceit force him into the ring to save his business and his marriage. Cameos by Dan Inosanto, Gene LeBell, Jean Jacques and John Machado, Enson Inoue, Randy Couture, and Ed O’Neill make it entertaining and still a must-see for any jiu-jitsu student.

Keenan Cornelius looked simply untouchable at the IBJJF 2018 European Championships in Lisbon, Portugal, this past weekend.
The Atos wizard submitted all of his opponents on his run to heavyweight gold and the absolute final. Cornelius made extensive use of new lapel strategies and employed a completely menacing guard that shut down any offense offered by his opponents.
His most impressive match of the weekend was arguably against Qatar BJJ monster Victor Honorio in the absolute division. Cornelius tied up Honorio with the far-side lapel that made his omoplata attack impossible to defend and submitted the significantly larger man with surgical precision. It was a perfect demonstration of technique neutralizing strength.
Cornelius also made shockingly quick work of Adam Wadzinski — an incredible jiu-jitsu player — during their semifinal match.
BJJ takes a new highs and it seems that it is going to be as popular as MMA. This lead CJ Hancock to drastically change his career.
Recently Hancock’s heart stopped when he collapsed during LFA. Medics rushed into the ring and brought him back to life and promptly took him to the hospital where it was determined he had kidney failure as a result of weight cutting.
CJ Hancock posted a Facebook update on Saturday morning to say that he is ‘okay’ and recovering in the hospital: ‘Well I died tonight in the cage… I’m okay. Thanks everyone. My heart stopped, and I had kidney failure, they did cpr and hit me with the defibrillator twice and brought me back. Still unsure why it happened. I had a hard weight cut. Doc says I shouldn’t fight again… I’m broken, I guess I’ll just be a coach from now on… I still plan on competing in Brazilian Jiu jitsu and BJJ superfights, when I get better. Thanks to everyone that supported me!’.
In a statement sent to MMA Fighting, LFA CEO Ed Soares said Hancock actually fell seconds after he was on the receiving end of a body kick.
“It’s a very unfortunate situation where C.J. Hancock took a body kick during his fight,” Soares said in the statement. “After the kick landed, there was a few second delay, and then he collapsed in the cage. Our cutman David Maldonado immediately recognized the problem and signaled to the medical team sitting cageside. They were able to resuscitate and stabilize C.J. and took him to the hospital via ambulance where they determined he had suffered kidney failure. C.J. is currently recovering and in the company of his friends and family.”
Hancock made weight at 170.5 pounds Thursday at weigh-ins. He fought on the amateur level as high as 205 pounds.
For now, that means getting back to his first love of jiu-jitsu. He plans to compete in submission grappling tournaments. He wants to coach more. And he wants to spread the word about the dangers of weight-cutting.
