After the success of our first live event, FloGrappling Who's Number One (WNO), it was only a matter of time before we came back for more.
The first event went down in the jiu-jitsu hotbed of Costa Mesa, California, and for the second installment we are coming to the home city of FloSports, Austin, Texas.
WNO: Mikey vs Erberth will go down on Saturday, March 28, in the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Austin. We plan to have eight WNO rules matches, and like before there will be an undercard of F2W submission only rules matches. This event will feature more black belt matches than the first installment, but there will still be a few matches to showcase the world's best colored belts.
So far there are four black belt matches taking place at the event, with another four colored belt matches filling out the main card.
The big news is the main event being a clash between P4P No.1 Mikey Musumeci and No.6 SHW Erberth Santos, two world champions almost 100 pounds apart.
This match first materialized when Mikey and Caio issued an open challenge on the WNO Podcast, with Erberth accepting the challenge. This is an incredible contrast not just in size but in style of jiu-jitsu and personality, with Mikey taking on one of the bad boys of jiu-jitsu.

Stay tuned for more colored belt matches to be announced in the coming days!
