Fight to Win Pro 53

Fight to Win Pro 53
TLI standout DJ Jackson will defend his title belt when he takes on the very tough challenger Gilbert 'Durinho' Burns in the main event of Fight To Win Pro 53.

Middleweight No-Gi champ Jackson will meet Durinho in a submission-only 10-minute match, which will be held in his backyard of Maryland. Jackson is an undefeated three-time Fight To Win veteran, having fought both John Combs and James Brasco no-gi, and Vinicius Aged in the gi.

Durinho, 31, is a black belt world champion in both gi (2011) and no-gi (2010 & 2013), and a third place finisher at the 2015 ADCC.

Also on the card will be Shane Jamil Hill Taylor vs Joseph Overstreet in a 155lb black belt gi match.
