All Access: Levi Jones-Leary Claims $100k After Defeating Matheus Gabriel At Spyder
Nov 23, 2019
For the first half of the match, Levi Jones-Leary looked like he might not have learned his lesson from facing a double-disqualification at Worlds earlier this year.
Both competitors faced three penalties for not coming up off the double guard pull. Gabriel was the first to come up on the fourth double guard pull, giving Jones-Leary an opportunity to attack.
His crab ride sequence did not secure points. But it did put him in the position to attack crank on Gabriel's foot. With the score tied and less than a minute to go, Gabriel made a tactical error, rolling for an attack. Jones-Leary sprung up to top position to secure points, and to guarantee his Spyder Invitational Championship title in his rookie year as a black belt.
