Fight 2 Win returns again this weekend for its third straight weekend of professional grappling fights. Rafeal Lovato Jr. competes again for his first time in years as he faces a huge match up against Arnaldo Maidana de Oliveira in the main event. The co-main event to feature ex-mma fighter and former Bellator world Champion Benson Henderson against professional grappler Edwin Najmi.



Rafeal Lovato Jr.Fight 2 Win has been capitalizing on the return of competition as the sport of grappling comes out of the COVID-19 lockdown. CEO Seth Daniels has lined up back to back events the last three weekends making up for lost time on previously cancelled events. The promotion is showing promising leadership as this glimmer of hope for martial arts competition has been welcomed by fans and practitioners across the world have been banned and in most cases quarantined from their normal training regiments.

To be honest, I was pretty nervous going into my match last night. Focusing on my dream to become a MMA World Champion @bellatormma kept me away from competing in the Gi for three years & it has been six years since I competed at the Mundials against adult level competition, that had me feeling a little unsure if maybe the game might had passed me by a bit. Would I be precise? Would I hesitate? Would I feel a step behind? These were the questions I had to block out. Fortunately MMA taught me how to let go, be free, & trust in your abilities. I tapped into the Oklahoma kid who fell in love with Jiu-Jitsu & gave his life to this beautiful art. I felt young again, I found my flow state & my therapy had begun. Jiu-Jitsu has always been there for me during the difficult times in my life & it taught me how to never take a moment when I get to put my 🥋 on for granted. It felt amazing to be back & I can’t wait to see my game evolve again. I don’t know how many more years I will be able to last at this level, but I do know that I have dedicated myself to having Timeless Jiu-Jitsu & will do my best to be here as long as possible 💪🏼 • I want to dedicate this one to my @lovatobjjmma students who have been supporting me & my father’s life work during this time 🙏🏼❤️ I hope this gave you some motivation & encouragement. We are 100% back in business on June 1st!!! 💥 • @lovatojjassociation @wartribegear @onnit @resiliencecbd @stayclassymeats @fightfortheforgotten • #TeamLovato #LovatoJiuJitsu #RibeiroJiuJitsu #TimelessJiuJitsu #LastRoundBestRound #BJJ #JiuJitsu #FightToWin #Champion #AndStill #ImBack #JiuJitsuIsBack • 🎥 by @flograppling @f2wbjj

By now, you've probably heard all about 52 Blocks — especially because we featured the martial art and its most visible proponent Professor Mo, aka Mahaliel Bethea, on the cover of our magazine last year. Just in case you haven't, know that 52 Blocks is a self-defense system that was spread in American prisons but that actually originated in Africa, according to Professor Mo. That's the reason we titled our June/July 2019 cover story with him "Art of Africa, Not Art of Incarceration."
