Rafael Lovato Jr. - Sunday, September 11, 2016

*Pictured Above: Our Team Lovato Jiu Jitsu Warriors for Fight To Win Pro 11 in OKC, OK

Fight To Win Promotions has been on a tear this year bringing Professional level Jiu Jitsu to the biggest cities across the nation. Luckily, they had chosen our hometown of Oklahoma City, OK to host their next event Fight To Win Pro 11 which saw our very own Professor Justin Rader in the Main Event versus another legend of the sport in BJJ Black belt Jeff Glover as well as our leader Professor Rafael Lovato Jr in the Co-Main Event against a young American up & comer BJJ Black Belt, Tanner Rice. Not only did our two largest representatives take to the stage, but 9 others represented for Team Lovato all ranging from purple to black belt with two Lovato Jiu Jitsu Black Belt affiliates, James Puopolo of Salem Kizer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Eddie Saenz of Kingdom Jiu Jitsu, looking to make their Fight To Win debuts. The night was packed full of high level non-stop action at the Cox Convention Center in the downtown OKC area, & was so well ran leaving the spectators with a very professionally ran experience. Out of our 11 warriors, we were able to come away with 7 victories for the night! Notably, Coach Dallas Niles, Professor James Puopolo, & Professor Lovato Jr were able to win their Super Fights all with text book Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu style, finishing with the cross choke from the mount position. 

We at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts are so proud of everyone's performances, whether the decision went in favor or not, each representative from our Team fought with so much heart & left everything on that grand stage.
