Kennedy Maciel vs Geo Martinez At WNO!

Two top ranked no-gi grapplers will meet at a catchweight for this event, with #1 at featherweight Geo Martinez meeting #1 at lightweight Kennedy Maciel in the middle at 150 lbs. This will be the co main event of the evening, sliding in right before the epic battle between Kaynan and Rodolfo.

FloGrappling Official No-Gi Rankings

Both athletes are coming off wins over top five ranked opponents in their weight, with Kennedy recently submitting Junny Ocasio at F2W and Geo defeating Paulo Miyao at WNO in October. WNO is all about making the biggest possible matches in the sport come to fruition, so it only made sense that these two stars collide at a catchweight sooner or later.
