We regret to inform you that our upcoming WNO event has lost both Gordon Ryan and Craig Jones, both athletes having to pull out after showing COVID-19 symptoms in recent days. We would like to thank both Craig and Gordon for being forthcoming and honest about their situation, and would also like to stress that both Gordon Ryan vs Ronaldo Junior and Craig Jones vs Lucas Barbosa are not canceled but postponed until a later date.
New Main Event: Garry Tonon vs Dante Leon!
One good thing about booking three main-event-caliber matches on one card: when disaster strikes, we're still ready to go! This matchup between the #2- and #4-ranked grapplers at 77kg slides into the main event slot, in a match that certainly will not disappoint. This a rematch from the 2019 ADCC bronze medal match, in which Garry won by heelhook.
Since ADCC, both grapplers have looked extremely impressive. Garry dominated Davi Ramos at F2W and also submitted Queixinho by heelhook. Dante submitted Isaque Bahiense at F2W, defeated Renato Canuto at KASAI and won No-Gi Worlds. This match will certainly look very different this time around, and will be contested in a 15-minute F2W rules format.
