Third Coast Grappling Returns With Gordon Ryan vs Patrick Gaudio

After turning heads with their recent event featuring a main event between ADCC champ Gordon Ryan and wrestling's top dog Bo Nickal, Third Coast Grappling returns on March 14 with another stacked card. 



“The King” Gordon Ryan returns to the 3rd Coast stage in a rematch from the 2018 IBJJF World No-Gi championship against the very tough Patrick Gaudio. 

Gordon won the very tight match via advantage in the final seconds of their first encounter and immediately following revealed how furious he was as he was unable to submit the GF Team veteran.
