Bahiense Tunes Up For Pans With Convincing Win vs Oliveira at F2W 105

While some competitors are resting up right before the 2019 IBJJF Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship, Isaque Bahiense and Vitor Oliveira were throwing down on Fight 2 Win. 

Appearing in the main event of submission-only superfight series Fight 2 Win, the two Brazilians met in a 10-minute match that served a dual purpose: as a warm-up for Pans, and to make some money in an event that routinely pays out thousands to top black belts. 

Both Bahiense and Oliveira are known as explosive competitors and the match started with 2018 World champ Bahiense scoring a quick reversal after pulling guard. He pressured and probed Oliveira’s guard for the first half of the match. Oliveira fought to top and looked to attack an ankle but Bahiense showed deft guard work and submission awareness in staying out of trouble. 

The last few minutes of the match played out mostly in 50-50, where the most significant submission attack of the match came. Bahiense went belly down and hips into an ankle lock but to no avail. The three judges gave a unanimous decision to Bahiense, with the ankle lock likely the deciding factor in determining the winner. 

With 39 matches total on Fight 2 Win 105, 19 ended via submission and 20 via decision. Click here for full results.

In February 2017 I completed my first project working freelance for FloGrappling, a photo essay titled "A Trip To America's Unseen Jiu-Jitsu Heartland." I lost money on the project, slept on the mats with the guys in the cold Illinois winter, and ended up having to change my friend's tire in the middle of nowhere in freezing weather on the way back to Chicago from Southern Illinois. But it was successful and opened up doors for me.
