Another a great weekend for Fight To Win Pro 35 where we had an amazing showing as a team! Purple belt, Zach Coffee (Kingdom Jiu Jitsu) started the team off with incredible display of technique leading him to his Bow & Arrow choke submission victory, increasing his pro jiu jitsu streak - ALL by submission, next Professor Eddie Saenz (Kingdom Jiu Jitsu) also increased his pro jiu jitsu record via unanimous decision, dominating his entire match & showed relentless pressure; following next was Professor James Puopolo (Salem Kizer BJJ) who represented such samurai spirit but ended up just short of the victory in his super fight; & finally in the Main Event, Professor Justin Rader had an spectacular performance against a very tough competitor in Bruno Frazatto, pushing the pace & showing such composure which ultimately led to his unanimous decision victory! Not only was this a very deserved win but also granted Professor Rader the title of F2W Pro Light Weight No Gi Champion! We are so very proud of all our warriors & their sacrifice to represent themselves as well as our family.
